Front Door Project to Increase Capacity of Immigration Legal Services Michigan Immigrant Rights Center
The Michigan Immigrant Rights Center (MIRC) recently received funding from The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan and The Kresge Foundation to expand free legal services for immigrants across Michigan. Through the “Front Door” project, MIRC and its partners aim to connect every individual with immigration legal needs in the Detroit Metro area to a trained, legal professional.
With an estimated 4,000 low-income immigrants facing legal crises in the Detroit area alone, the current immigration legal services delivery system is both under-resourced and under-coordinated. Thanks to one- and three-year grants from the Community Foundation and Kresge Foundation, respectively, the Front Door project is now underway and will significantly increase access to legal resources and representation in deportation proceedings and other immigration matters.
