The Project

I am developing a pilot program with the DC Child and Family Services Agency to identify children in the foster care system who may be eligible for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). I will be screening foster children for SIJS eligibility and training CFSA staff members to assess SIJS eligibility themselves. I will be directly representing some of the eligible children in family and immigration court proceedings, and establishing and training attorneys willing to represent such children on a pro bono basis.
