National Appleseed has updated its manual for 2017, originally published in 2012. This one-of-a-kind resource is designed for immigrants and those who work with them: the host of attorneys, nurses, social workers, financial services professionals, and religious workers who are stepping up in challenging times. National Appleseed’s Manual helps families develop plans in advance to deal with critical financial and family issues in the event of detention, deportation, and other family emergencies. The Manual contains detailed information on issues ranging from school safety, child custody, psychological issues for children, special considerations for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, and financial services and products including credit cards, debit cards, mortgages and rental payments, taxes, veterans benefits, and much more. The full Manual will also be available in Spanish on their main web page:
