STEP 7: VOLUNTEER

Many organizations in border states are actively looking for volunteers, especially volunteers who are Spanish-speaking and have legal experience. Sign up to volunteer with the Texas Civil Rights Project (or email here for more information). 

 
 
 

STEP 8: FOSTER

For undocumented children caught up in complex or lengthy immigration cases, a stable and caring home for the duration can help ease the trauma of their experience.

If you are able to offer a foster home to an undocumented child caught up in this process, find out from your state authorities about how to become licensed to do so.

"If you are not already licensed, you could begin by contacting one of the foster care providers for unaccompanied alien children, such as United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, which have provided foster care to unaccompanied refugee and immigrant children for many years,” recommends the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
