Description of Resource

This toolkit was primarily developed for foster care caseworkers assisting children in the federal custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement's Division of Children's Services (ORR/DCS), to ensure that SIJS-eligible children receive the assistance and case monitoring they need during the SIJS application process. In addition, this toolkit may also help social service and legal practitioners working with other children who may be eligible for SIJS. This toolkit consists of nine products, which include flow charts, Q & As, and lists of resources.  It was updated in 2012.
