Refugee Foster Care

Building families beyond borders.

What We Do

 Through CCS, unaccompanied refugee minors are placed in foster care homes and have the option to stay in the program until they turn 21. While in the program, a team of Family Consultants, Case Managers, and Transition to Adult Living Coaches work with foster families to help the youth reach their goals and prepare for long-term self-sufficiency.

How We Do It

The Refugee Foster Care program offers clients a wide variety of services until they reach the age of 21. All youth receive the same services as children in Utah foster care. These services include receiving financial support, medical care, mental health treatment, case management, education and job training, legal and immigration assistance, and much more.

Who We Help

Of the world’s 26 million refugees, nearly half are children. Seeking refuge in a new country is challenging no matter the circumstance, but seeking refuge as an unaccompanied minor comes with a unique set of challenges.
