I also love the people I work with. Working at the Villages is like having an extended family.
The McCrummen Immigration Law Group is a full-service immigration law firm in North Kansas City, Missouri that provides comprehensive immigration solutions for businesses and families. This firm has been essential in helping the children in our Unaccompanied Children program.
Children from all over the world come to the United States each year. Many are seeking asylum due to violence in their home country. Their circumstances are varied and could include gender-based abuse, political refuge, or a need for protection from gang violence in their home country. Others may have been abused, abandoned, or neglected by one or both parents. In our Unaccompanied Children program, we offer refuge to these children for a short period of time until they are able to live with their sponsors.
Clare Shaw, an attorney at the McCrummen Immigration Law Group, works specifically with our Unaccompanied Children, assisting them through the legal process of seeking asylum. Clare and her assistant Kathy, along with a team of individuals at the McCrummen Immigration Law Group, reviews each child’s case and works to make sure each child knows their rights within 10 days of arriving at the Villages. If the child’s sponsor is located in another state, Clare and her team work to make sure the children are connected with attorneys in that area when they leave the Villages. The McCrummen group also provides legal representation in certain cases, advocates for the children, and provides legal assistance when needed.
The McCrummen Immigration Law Group is an essential part of supporting the children that come to the Villages. To learn more about McCrummen Immigration Law Group LLC, visit https://kcimmigrationlaw.com/.
This month’s student spotlight is Sam B!
Sam has been at the Villages since September 29th, 2020 and was recently adopted by his old 5th-grade teacher. While Sam is excited about his new home, he’s told his case manager that he’s really going to miss House 7.
In Sam’s free time he loves football, track, and video games.
Congratulations on the new home Sam!
