We strive to make youth feel as safe and comfortable as possible while we search for a permanent residence for them. Most youth are with us for less than 30 days.
The moment a youth enters one of our programs, we do everything in our power to ensure they feel welcomed. Many of them have had very difficult journeys to get to where they are and we want them to feel as if they are finally safe. While they are with us, each child is treated with the utmost respect. We provide them with fresh clothes, hot meals, and a bed of their own to sleep in. As we continue to care for them, our staff dedicate themselves to contacting each child's family members in their home country and work to identify any and all family members who reside in the U.S. A majority of children are united with family members or approved sponsors within a month of arrival.
