The Project

The purpose of the New York State Family Security Project is to promote family security and community education through the delivery of high-quality legal services to underserved and/or low-income immigrant families.  The project will involve conducting intakes, assessing eligibility for legal remedies, and providing direct representation or referrals when necessary.

There’s a significant population of immigrants with unmet legal needs living in upstate New York. Through outreach and collaboration with community-based organizations, the goal is to educate immigrants about their legal rights and options.
