The Project

The Immigrant Children Advocacy Project (ICAP) of Catholic Charities, Inc. fills a desperate need for vulnerable immigrant children located in NC, SC, GA, AL, LA and MS.

ICAP provides a comprehensive program of direct representation in State Juvenile Court and Federal Immigration Court, community education and advocacy, pro bono recruitment and training, and long-term self-sustaining program development.
