Catholic Charities USA sees the incredible influx of unaccompanied minors crossing the border to this country as a Humanitarian Crisis. They are fully engaged in activities both at the national and local level responding to the needs of the thousands of families and children coming to this country in search of a better and safe life.
In this humanitarian crisis, let us not forget that immigrant families and children are human beings. They are children of God and must be treated with dignity and respect, care and compassion.
CCUSA’s Disaster Operations team has been responding to this crisis since early June, providing a range of support to our local agencies such as working with government agencies to find shelter that can properly house children, finding bilingual volunteers and certified social workers, and collaborating with other U.S. Catholic Church organizations and service providers to identify and work towards long-term and short-term solutions to this crisis.
