As COIN begins hosting a round of Family Safety Planning clinics, you may be wondering just what is a "family safety plan" and why is COIN hosting these events? These are good questions, and during times of uncertainty is it important to gain as much information as possible to help yourself and your neighbors.
Family safety plans primarily help families with parents at risk of deportation or detention; at the events, guests meet with attorneys to create temporary guardianship and power of attorney forms. These forms are notarized and guests leave with a prepared plan and protection for their family, all at no cost.
These plans are important for those at risk of deportation or detention to have in order to protect families; while we hope that the family safety plans created at our events are never used, COIN wishes to help provide extra security and peace of mind for immigrant parents in the Indianapolis area.
