Assistance for Families Concerned about Immigration Enforcement

How my office can help


The Family Preparedness Plan explains steps that people who are undocumented can take to keep their children safe. It includes information regarding how to develop a child care plan in addition to important forms and documents that families can have ready. It is always important to store backup copies of these documents in a safe place. The toolkit also includes information on where to find immigration legal assistance, and guidance on how to avoid immigration scams.

My office might be able to help you obtain the federal documents necessary for a comprehensive plan. Please call my staff at 860-223-8412 to learn more about how we can assist with:
