Statementof Work
Scopeof Work:
The U.S. Deparfinentof Health and Human Services,Administration for Children and
Families, Office of RefugeeResettlement(ORR) requires a confractor to develop and
coordinatea progmm to increasecapacityof pro bono legal servicerepresentationefforts
before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) for unaccompaniedalien
children(UAC) in HHS custodyand care, to recommendmodelsfor recruiting, training,
and supervisinglinguistically capableand independentvolunteerchild advocates,and to
for UAC who arereleasedto sponsors,including
facilitateaccessto legal representation
providing
in
legal
orientationpresentationsto the sponsors.
coordinationwith EOIR
Background:
on March 1,2002,the HomelandSecurityAct of 2002, 5462,6U.S.C. S 279,transferred
the functions under U.S. immigration laws regarding the care and placement of
unaccompaniedalie,nchildren (UAC) from the former Immigration and Naturalization
Serviceto the Director of the Office of RefugeeResettlement(ORR). The Division of
UnaccompaniedChildren's Senrices(DUCS) was createdwithin ORR to serve this
pupose. The UAC populationincludesthosewho: (1) haveno lawful immigrationstatus
in theUnited States;(2) havenot attained18 yearsof age;and(3) with respectto whom(i) there is no parent or legal guardianin the United States;or (ii) no parent or legal
guardianin the United Statesis availableto provide careandphysical custody.
On December 23, 2008, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection
Act of 2008 (TVPRA) was passed. The law modified and expanded
Reauthorization
IilIS' role in the careof UAC. Relevantto this Statementof Work, section235(c)(5)of
the (TVPRA), 8 U.S.C. $ 1232(c)(5)states,"[t]he Secretaryof Health and Human
Seryicesshall ensure,to the greatestextentpracticableand consistentwith section292 of
the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. L362), that all unaccompaniedalien
children who are or have beenin the custodyof the Secretary[of IIHS] or the Secretary
of HomelandSecurity. . . havecounselto representthemin legalproceedings. . . To the
greatestextentpracticabtre,
the Secretaryof Health andHuman Servicesshall makeevery
to
effort to utilize the servicesof pro bono counselwho agreeto providerepresentation
such children without charge." In addition,section235(c)(6),8 U.S.C. $ 1232(c)(6)
notes, "[t]he Secretary of Health and Human Services is authorized to appoint
independent child advocates for child tafficking victims and other vulnerable
unaccompanied
alien childre,n."l
DUCS identifies careoptions andplacementsfor UAC in licensedshelters,grouphomes,
securefacilities,or fostercare,accordingto their specificneeds. In makingplacements,
DUCS is guidedby the principlesthat all UAC shouldbe treatedwith dignity, respect,

and specialconcernfor their particular wlnerability, all UAC must be placedin the least
restrictivesettingthat is in the bestinterestof the UAC, and eachUAC shall be provided
care and servicesfree from discriminationbasedon race, religion, national origin, sex,
handicap,or political belief.
UAC are particularly vulnerable, having faced traumatic situations in their home
counhies,suchas dire poverty, war, forcedmilitary recruitrnent,domesticviolence,gang
violence, and governmentneglect. Some are also very young, most have little or no
formal education,and are primarily non-Englishspeaking. After apprehensionby DHS,
andhousedin DUCS confractedshelters,thesechildren facea complicatedlegal system.
Professional legal counsel assists in determining if the children qualify for any
immigrationrelief from removalbackto their homecountries.Otherformsof relief may
be availableif the child hasbeena victim of humantrafficking or otherformsof criminal
violence. In addition,UAC in IIHS custodymay haverelativesin the United Statesto
whom they canbe releasedwhile their immigrationcasesarepending.
Legal representationfor UAC canallow for increasedefficiency in the immigration court
system. Without dedicated,professionallegal counselto write persuasive,detailed
applications,gathersupportingdocumentation,and in somecases,provide compelling
oral arguments,UAC may have very limited successin obtaining relief in immigration
court. Furthermore,UAC without any relief from removalmay needassistanceto ensure
a safe return back to his or her home country. In addition, the immigration system
becomesmore efficient becauseimmigrationjudges do not needto delay casesto allow
children to find attorneys. Qualified and competentlegal serviceproviders can provide
legal representation
or can successfullyrecruit and train pro bono attorneys.Moreover,
thesesamelegal serviceproviderscan facilitatethe continuationof legal representation
oncea UAC is releasedto a sponsor.
Moreover,appointinga child advocateto vulnerableUAC in ORR custodycanensurethe
child's best interestsare identified. An assignedchild advocatespendstime with the
child and developsa relationshipof trust with the child. Someof the dutiesof the child
advocatewill be to develop a serviceplan with the shelterfacility staff and child's
attomey,visit the child regularly, explain communicationlimitations and confidentiality
to the child, obtain background information on the child, including information
concerningthe child's departurefrom his or her country or origin, the child's journey to
the United States, the child's arrival in the United States, the period between
apprehensionand tansfer to HHS custody, and time in the United States before
apprehension,
if any,
Significantly, the child advocatespendstime with the UAC and speakswith the child's
Clinical Counselor,Family ReunificationSpecialist,teachers,and other shelterstaff to
understandthe child's current situation (for example, education,therapeuticservices,
socialsupport,etc). The child advocatehelpsthe child processinformationand explains
the consequences
of decisions,and assiststhe child to make decisionsin situationsin
which the child requestshelp. For childrenwho are not ableto make decisions(dueto

cognitive or other reasons),the child advocatewill identiff the options that are in the
child's best interestsin a written report and will explain why other apparentoptions are
excluded.The child advocatedevelopsrecommendationsand advocatesas to the best
interestsof the child with respectto issuesrelatedto the child's custody,care,detention,
releaseand repatriationas well as with respectto any stateand federal court proceedings
involving the child.
I{HS intendsto developa programbasedon the findings of a three yearpilot programon

capacityof non-profit legal serviceprovidersthat can provide high-qualitypro bono
