Well-rounded aid to unaccompanied minor immigrants
The International Foster Care (IFC) Program assists unaccompanied minors who do not have adult caregivers. The program partners with foster families to provide a safe, nurturing, and culturally sensitive environment that equips and empowers them to reach their full potential. IFC provides services to meet the needs of each youth. These services include tutoring, mentoring, independent living skills training, cultural activities, legal assistance, mental health services, intensive case management and education/ESL classes.
Currently, our International Foster Care provides homes for minors from Congo, Somalia,
Eritrea, Burma, Guatemala and Mexico. These youth are usually 15-17 years old and are
in vulnerable situations. Their stories of survival can be painful to hear, yet full of faith
