Resources for Advocacy

The Center on Immigration and Child Welfare is pleased to announce the release of the updated practice toolkit, A Social Worker's Toolkit for Working With Immigrant Families - Immigration Status and Relief Options. This toolkit provides a basic overview of the dynamics of the U.S. immigration system as it impacts children and families in the child welfare system.

The toolkit includes practical appendices with resources for accessing vital documents, facilitating communication between child welfare and immigration legal counsel, and a summary of immigration relief options applicable to youth in care. Download the toolkit here.

In addition to practice toolkits, the CICW offers a range of practice resources for both child welfare professionals and immigrant youth and families. Visit the website to learn more about the resources that are available.
