Caminos

Board of Child Care’s Caminos program provides safe, secure placement options for children who have recently migrated to the United States and are seeking opportunities for reunification with family as well as the chance to pursue their education and legal immigration cases. They are young and vulnerable, and have made the hazardous journey facing exploitation, abuse and human trafficking alone and have been placed in our care.

 CAMINOS – from the Spanish language meaning (a path of travel ) road-journey.
