Safe Passage Project

About Safe Passage Project

Safe Passage Project is a non-profit organization providing free legal services to children in New York threatened with deportation. No child should face immigration court alone. Legal services are provided either by one of our staff attorneys or by pro bono lawyers that we train and mentor. We frequently help children in Immigration Court, Family Court, the Asylum Office, USCIS, and in appeals. We seek fair, compassionate, and equal treatment of all immigrant children.

We were founded in 2013 and are based in downtown Manhattan, minutes away from the NY Immigration Court, with a satellite office in Long Island. We serve over 700 clients with 12 staff attorneys, 3 paralegals, 2 social workers, 1 case manager, and over 400 pro bono lawyers. We are an energetic, passionate, and hard-working team.
