Be a Champion for the Rights of Immigrant Children with Your Next Real Estate Transaction
The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights protects and advances the rights and best interests of immigrant children. As a member of Investing In Communities®, The Young Center can receive funding as a result of any real estate transaction – home sales, home purchases, or commercial leases. Already, $4,300 has been raised as a result of a commercial lease. As more supporters use this platform before engaging an agent, The Young Center will have more funds to stand in the justice gap and prevent deportations that aren’t in the best interest of the child.
Advocates for At-Risk Immigrant Children
Because of the global politicization of immigration, and despite human rights laws and policies to the contrary, immigrant children are now among the most imperiled and vulnerable groups in need of assistance. For minors unaccompanied by a guardian in the United States, the myriad government agencies and their various roles and responsibilities create a complicated and confusing bureaucratic landscape to traverse. The Young Center’s program is the only one in the nation that provides independent Child Advocates to ensure that all decisions made regarding unaccompanied and separated children in removal proceedings take into account their best interests (safety and well-being). Their staff of attorneys and social workers, overseeing a dedicated corps of volunteers, meet with children, learn their stories, and advocate for them at every step. The ultimate goal is an immigration system that treats a child like a child, not an adult-in-miniature.
How The Young Center Protects the Rights of Immigrant Children
- Advances enlightened decision making with regard to all aspects of a child’s custody, care, and immigration remedies;
- Secures representation for children in removal proceedings;
- Ensures that immigrant children receive the rights to which they are entitled under international, state, and federal law;
- Ensures that all decisions take into consideration childrens’ express wishes; and
- Implements a system of universally agreed upon child welfare policies and best practices for unaccompanied and separated immigrant children.
Buying, Selling, and Leasing Can Generate Funding for The Young Center
At no cost to themselves, anyone who cares about the rights and safety of unaccompanied immigrant children can turn virtually any brokered real estate transaction into funding for The Young Center, at no cost. For example, the purchase or sale of a $300,000 home can result in about $1,300 of free funding, which has a significant impact on their mission.
