This guide is to help connect immigrants and immigrant families who are affected by these raids with resources in Arapahoe County. It is our hope that by presenting these resources individuals, families, friends and neighbors who are, or know someone who has been affected by these raids can have a guide for reference. Please note that only lawyers can make legal recommendations in situations like these, and Arapahoe Library District does not have any lawyers on our staff. However, we have information about organizations who can assist you, your family or your friend(s).
