About The Program And Position

Our Transitional Foster Care Program for Unaccompanied Children (UC) overseen by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), ensures the well-being and safety of unaccompanied children (ages 0-17) who cross the US Southern border without an adult. Unlike traditional congregate care settings, our approach involves placing unaccompanied children in foster homes while diligently searching for and assessing potential sponsors identified in the US. During their stay with us, we provide medical care, case management, engaging life skills classes, and essential mental health services.

Our RNs specifically provide medical care required by the unaccompanied children we serve. We are looking for RNs who are passionate about helping this vulnerable population and able to support a busy medical office. The role is crucial to the health & wellbeing of our unaccompanied children who are trying to establish a new home in the U.S.
