Unaccompanied Children in 2021: Serving Immigrant and Refugee Youth
This webinar will provide details on who unaccompanied children are and where they come from, factors driving their migration, and the challenges they face once they arrive in the United States. Participants will learn more about the recent surge in migrant children crossing the US-Mexico border and the implications this has had on their care prior to reunifying with a sponsor or being placed in long term foster care. We will also consider the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on this population and the ways this has affected the services provided to youth as well as their experience in their new communities. USCCB and CCC will provide a picture of USCCB’s model of care for unaccompanied migrant children through small-scale shelters, group homes, and foster care placements. Presenters will highlight how USCCB’s model provides continuity of care for youth coming into the United States, including pursuit of legal relief, reunification with family and sponsors in the community, and long-term foster care and independent living options for youth who are granted legal status.
