Every day, children from all over the world leave their homes in search of a safer life. They are young and vulnerable. Oftentimes, these youth have made the hazardous journey alone, facing exploitation, abuse, and human trafficking.
Our Caminos® program provides safe, secure placement options and post placement supports (post release services) for these children who have recently migrated to the United States. They are often seeking opportunities for reunification with family, as well as the chance to pursue their education and legal immigration cases.
How we support recently migrated youth.
Thousands of families across the U.S. are meeting the needs of vulnerable, migrant youth by welcoming them into their homes. Learn how you can become a certified resource family.
Home Study & Post-Release Services Program
Recently migrated youth are often referred for home study and post-release services to help ensure that foundational needs are being met in a way that addresses the lingering effects of past traumatic experiences and promotes healing and recovery.
Through our Caminos program, we are able to provide short-term shelter to recently migrated youth under 18 years of age whose lives are in jeopardy after fleeing alone from all over the world.
Through Caminos Nacional, BCC provides guidance, consultation, and grant management to accredited partner organizations so that they may also offer the Caminos service to at-risk migrant children.
