Kids in Need of Defense Helps Guatemalan Children

A former resident of Hoboken, NJ, Thomas Foley now works in New York and Dallas as a principal of the investment and business advisory firm The Indigo Group, LLC. He has a background in law and is admitted to practice in United States District Courts in New Jersey and New York as well as the State Courts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. Thomas Foley also volunteers for Kids in Need of Defense.

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) operates a program known as the Guatemalan Child Return and Reintegration Project (GCRRP) to assist children returning to Guatemala from the United States. The program serves children who have journeyed alone to the United States and yet have no reasonable claims for U.S. protection, so they must return to their home country, either voluntarily or through official deportation. The GCRRP helps to ensure that the children travel safely and receive support back in Guatemala.

The Guatemalan Child Return and Reintegration Project serves as an extension of KIND’s mission to protect children by providing them with pro bono legal services. The organization manages the project in collaboration with the Global Fund for Children.
