WASHINGTON, D.C.—Venable Foundation, the philanthropic arm of law firm Venable LLP, is pleased to announce that it has awarded an impact grant totaling $250,000 to Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), an organization providing social and legal services to unaccompanied immigrant children in the United States. The grant was announced at the Foundation’s 40th anniversary celebration. This year’s impact funding will directly benefit the social services support for KIND’s clients residing in DC, Los Angeles, Maryland, New York, San Francisco, and Virginia.
The unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children KIND serves have complex psychosocial needs stemming from trauma experienced before, during, and after their journeys to the United States. Many also require assistance with basic needs, including food, housing, and healthcare. All need help navigating the U.S. immigration and child welfare systems. KIND’s holistic approach works to ensure clients’ needs are met by complementing their legal representation with comprehensive social services.
