Unaccompanied Refugee Minors

In 1980, LSS/NCA expanded its programming to serve unaccompanied refugee minors -- children who made their journey to the United States without parents or other guardians. In 2015, the United States experienced another wave of immigrant children crossing the border in an attempt to escape gang violence and death, an increasing trend that continues today. Often experiencing tremendous adversity in their journey to a new life, these children are striving to overcome unique acculturation and emotional challenges.
