Providing Support for Clients and Families
with Immigration Concerns

June 29, 2021
9:30 to 11:30
Via Zoom
Everything you needed to know about immigration terminology and the various documentation statuses of the immigration population. The training will provide advocacy tools and education around the risks of this population being caught by Immigration, possible paths to obtain status, and current administration changes that impact this vulnerable population. The presenter will explore how status affects individuals and families and how lawful status may be obtained through the application process. What are the benefits and challenges of the various statuses and what is the impact of current policies on children and their families? How can we as social workers best support immigrants with concerns for their safety and their families?

Attorney Meghann E. LaFountain of LaFountain Immigration Law, LLC in Middletown will be our presenter for this timely and valuable workshop. A graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Law, she started on this journey as a Law Student Representative at the Asylum & Human Rights Clinic in Hartford in 2010. She worked for Immigration law firms until starting her own firm in 2017 where she focuses on low bono/discounted legal services to clients. Attorney LaFountain brings a holistic approach to legal representation, helping clients connect with other resources in the community for things such as medical care, food and clothing, and mental health care. She serves as Chair of the CT American Immigration Lawyers Association of CT, Treasurer of the Middlesex County Bar Association, and was the former Chair of the Women’s Initiative of the Middlesex County United Way.
