First Steps: An LIRS Guide for Refugees, Asylum Seekers, and Migrants released from Detention will help you find support and assistance while you build a new life in the United States. The main guide includes appendices on organizations that provide legal and community support, as well as torture treatment. It is recommended for use by lawyers, case managers, church partners, or other service providers to aid clients in understanding the complex system of rights and benefits available to them and empower clients to access their rights; as well as for use by migrants themselves.

The status-specific supplements are intended for migrant populations to use themselves. They are shorter, are filled with the most critical information for migrants according to status, and relate back to the main guide.
