"As a Regional Director for the Legal Programs Team I supervise six of KIND’s managing attorneys. I assist them with all aspects of field office management including programmatic support, organizational development, performance, casework, growth leadership, metrics tracking, funding, budgets and communication. Supporting and working in partnership with KIND’s managing attorneys is one of the highlights of my role as Regional Director! "

"I am privileged to work with an amazing group of people who are deeply committed to the success of every child we serve. Their perseverance, talent, and generosity (and wicked sense of humor!) inspires me. The organization is constantly exploring ways to improve the lives of the most vulnerable immigrants, children. I have been involved in this work for a long time and I really appreciate being part of an organization takes the time to consistently reflect on its focus and expands and adapts to the urgent needs of our clients as needed. "

"I love the fact that I get to work every day with people who want to bring good into the world. I know that even in the darkest days, I will have a reason to smile and joke around because of the camaraderie and inherently good nature of the people around me. I also look forward to the opportunity to work on challenging legal issues, as immigration policies continue to change with time. Our work is not easy, so having the right environment is crucial. I’m so grateful to get to work with my KIND colleagues. They really are the main reason I have stayed all this time. "
Salma F. Hasan, Esq. Senior Attorney
"It is hard to distinguish one particular achievement as there have been so many fulfilling experiences over the last five and a half years. In 2018, I was also able to work with pro bono attorneys in New York who were assisting a group of the separated children to prevent their immediate removal. Seeing their dedication and being able to play a small role towards resolution of the children’s cases was an honor. The following year I received a voice message from one of the little girls who had been separated from her mother at the border. She said, “Thank you for helping me be with my mother again.” Despite the harrowing circumstances that brought me to work with that family, it is messages like those that remind me why I do this work."
