Advice And Assistance To Immigrant Families Including Members With Special Needs

Many immigrant families with special needs children or adults courageously face extraordinary challenges, including:

  • Meeting the day-to-day care needs of disabled children or adults in the family
  • Navigating systems of support for children and adults with special needs, including schools, health care service providers, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies that may offer information and assistance, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid and Medicare
  • Understanding and complying with legal requirements for maintaining immigration statuses, whether as visitors or lawful permanent residents (LPRs or green card holders)
  • Staying up to date and avoiding complications related to complex, frequently changing immigration policy developments, such as the Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds final rule of 2020, which may affect people from other countries applying for adjustment of status, renewal of visas and citizenship
