ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: El Centro Hispanoamericano

El Centro Hispanoamericano, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Department of Justice (DOJ) recognized organization, located in Plainfield, New Jersey. Created in 1984, El Centro has a history of almost four decades of counseling and representing low-income immigrants, including the undocumented, crime and human trafficking victims, domestic violence survivors, and unaccompanied minors, among others.

Our Pro Bono Program is seeking to connect skillful attorneys with community members in need of legal representation on humanitarian-based immigration cases. If needed, our organization is ready and able to provide training, as well as technical and clerical support to pro bono attorneys. We are focusing on immigration cases for domestic violence victims and children lacking a parent or guardian in this country. Nearly all of our clients at El Centro are low-income and have scarce means to afford legal representation. By launching this initiative, it is our goal to expand the impact of El Centro in the community and reduce the barriers to access legal representation for some of our most vulnerable community members.
