About Kids in Need of Defense:

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) is a nonprofit organization that works to find pro bono representation for children alone in the United States. These children – from toddlers to teenagers – are fleeing war, persecution, severe abuse, trafficking, abandonment, and deep deprivation. They are seeking safety in the United States, but find that they have no one to help them make their case for U.S. protection in immigration court. Without counsel, they may be deported to their home countries where their well-being, and even their lives, may be in danger. Through a public-private partnership model, KIND has partnered with more than 140 law firms and corporations which volunteer to represent these uniquely vulnerable children and help them realize their dream of safety and freedom from fear. KIND recognizes that not all children can remain in the U.S.; a KIND pilot program helps children returning alone to Guatemala return safely and to re-integrate successfully into their communities.
