KIND celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2018 – a decade of changing the lives of unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children, giving them hope, safety, and a chance to fulfill their dreams. Our accomplishments have surpassed our wildest dreams – more than 18,000 children referred, 41,000 attorneys, paralegals, and law students trained, and partnerships withover 600 law firms and corporations. Ninety-six percent of KIND’s completed cases result in legal relief. We continue to grow nationally and internationally, expanding our work in Central America, Mexico, and the United Kingdom, and launching in Europe.
KIND has become a world-renowned expert and advocate for unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children. We were well positioned to address the myriad challenges we faced in 2018 as the United States imposed significant barriers to children seeking protection, including impeded access to the U.S. to apply for asylum and forcing children to stay in dangerous conditions in Mexico.
