The value of Family Resource Centers in communities is examined in this research paper, with a focus on legal advocacy in undocumented communities. To begin, do Family Resource Centers provide sufficient resources to the undocumented population? By 2022, there will be over 3,000 FRCs in 30 states, serving over 2 million people per year. Second, how can the Family Resource Center best support Valley Palms' undocumented population? Finally, do Family Resource Centers play an important role in community development? These are some of the questions that helped lead the research when it came down to semi-structured interviews with employees from family resource centers, both in person and remotely. According to the findings, there are insufficient legal resources for Valley Palms' undocumented community. Another result was that family separation has negative mental health repercussions for children and adolescents. This study sheds light on the current immigration crisis in the United States. This research is critical because marginalized communities frequently face insurmountable barriers to being heard. Another important factor is that free access to legal services is critical in communities that are being persecuted by ICE.
