Description:

Program assists immigrant youth with refugee status who enter the United States without a parent/guardian. These children may be refugees, asylees, entrants, or victims of human trafficking. Children born in other countries, who have received special “unaccompanied refugee minor” classification from the US government, are placed in licensed foster homes. They attend local schools and are provided with a full array of services. Younger children are placed in the care of foster families. Older youth, between the ages of 18 and 23, receive assistance through placement in independent living environments.

The program also serves those interested in becoming foster parents to these children.

Our Unaccompanied Refugee Minors Program offers services including:

* 24/7 foster care
* Case management
* Assistance with legal status
* Help completing financial assistance applications
* Advocacy
* Educational/socialization activities
* Scholarships
* Life Skills training
* Mentoring and counseling
