Grantee of the Week: Amelia Anderson

PILF_grantee_AmeliaThis summer I am working at Legal Services for Children (LSC). LSC is an incredible organization that represents youth in dependency, guardianship, immigration, and education proceedings.  Their staff includes both attorneys and social workers, this helps to ensure that clients receive holistic assistance. Although I mainly focus on dependency and immigration cases, I get exposure to all areas of their practice by preforming bilingual in-take over their “warm line” every week. I primarily work with immigrant and citizen children who have suffered abuse, abandonment, or neglect. This work includes: conducting intake interviews, preparing immigration applications, preforming legal research, drafting declarations and pleadings, and attending court. Working with LSC has been an amazing experience thus far and I am grateful to PILF for helping to make this possible!
