Unity by the Shore has partnered with Center For Family Services to join the movement to reunite children with their family.
Children can find comfort and care when they need it most. Center For Family Services has a 40 year history providing shelter for children in need of a safe place to live. In the last year, Center For Family Services expanded their housing services to provide safety to vulnerable children who crossed the southern border into the United States.
Most of these boys and girls entered our country in search of safety and a better life. They traveled many miles, fleeing violence, abuse, trauma, and neglect.
Center For Family Services provides a safe home for these children. Brothers and sisters have reunited. Moms and their babies have found safety. Sibling groups have remained together, and children have been reunited with their families.
Center For Family Services emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety and help each child rebuild a sense of control in their lives.
A welcoming home environment supports the healing process. Each child is linked with a caring and highly trained bi-lingual caseworker upon arrival. They are offered a warm meal, new clothes, and a shower. Within the first few days, children receive a medical examination and appropriate vaccinations.
Caseworkers immediately initiate the reunification process. Services are focused on the specific needs of each individual child and include comprehensive assessments, case management, therapeutic counseling, education, recreation, court accompaniment, and assistance with locating an eligible sponsor or family member.
Please join us in helping Center For Family Services make life-changing services available for children seeking asylum in the United States.Necessities Drive July 2018
