The New York Bar Foundation recently presented a grant of $5,000 to South Bronx United Inc. The grant will be used to support their Global Youth League Immigration Clinics.
“Thanks to the New York Bar Foundation’s support, South Bronx United will be able to expand its immigration clinics for youth and families in the Global Youth League program,” said South Bronx United’s Executive Director, Andrew So. “Our program engages immigrant and first generation youth, including recently-arrived youth and unaccompanied minors, through a common love for soccer while connecting them with immigration relief and legal representation when eligible. This grant will have a significant positive impact on the organization’s ability to deliver these services.”
“The New York Bar Foundation this year allocated nearly $700,000 in grants to 105 programs across New York, and we have nearly doubled the total dollar amount of grants over the past five years,” said Bar Foundation President John H. Gross. “Foundation leadership has worked hard to increase available funds so that we can continue to assist those in need of legal services across New York State and we are pleased that we are able to offer more assistance.”
