About KIND:

KIND serves as the leading organization for the protection of unaccompanied children who enter the U.S. immigration system alone and strives to ensure that no such child appears in immigration court without representation. We achieve fundamental fairness through high-quality legal representation and by advancing the child's best interests, safety, and well-being.

Founded in 2008 by the Microsoft Corporation and UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie, KIND has partnered with more than 200 law firms, corporations, and law schools that have volunteered to represent these children so they have a fair chance to make their case for U.S. protection. KIND also advocates to change law, policy, and practice to improve the protection of these children, and helps ensure the safe return and reintegration of unaccompanied children returning to Guatemala.
