KIND’s Central American Minors (CAM) Application Program provides free assistance to parents and legal guardians in the United States seeking to bring their children to the United States under the CAM program. CAM is a U.S. government program that provides qualifying parents and legal guardians in the United States who are in certain immigration categories an opportunity to apply for their qualifying children to reunify with them in the United States. Through CAM, parents and legal guardians can apply for qualifying children and certain family members in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras to travel to the United States with refugee status. Those who are not granted refugee status may be able to receive humanitarian parole. KIND can help parents and legal guardians determine if they may be eligible for CAM, and if so, to prepare the CAM application, known as the Affidavit of Relationship or “AOR.” KIND is partnering with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) for this project.
If you would like to find out if you or someone you know may be eligible to apply for CAM, or if you are seeking help with a CAM application, please make a referral. You can contact the CAM Hotline, or refer your case to KIND online.

KIND will help parents and guardians prepare their CAM applications if they are eligible, getting them started with the process.
Note* that KIND’s role is limited to preparing the CAM application—CAM applications can only be submitted to the U.S. government by a designated Resettlement Agency in the United States. KIND is now working directly with the Resettlement Agencies to prepare CAM applications. CAM cases that are accepted for processing by the U.S. government will be assigned to a Resettlement Agency that will assist the family with the next steps of the process.
