Award-Winning Consultation and Training In 2009, USCCB/MRS' refugee and immigrant child welfare technical assistance program, BRYCS, was the recipient of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children's (APSAC) annual award for outstanding contributions to the advancement of cultural competency in child maltreatment prevention and intervention.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops department of Migration and Refugee Services (USCCB/MRS) provides operational and consultative services for migrating children and their families. We specialize in the intersection between migration and child permanency, protection and integration. We build the capacity of agencies nationally and internationally to respond to the emerging needs of refugees, undocumented migrants, asylum seekers, victims of trafficking and other vulnerable migrating populations.
USCCB/MRS, a non-profit, non-governmental organization, is the largest refugee resettlement agency in the world, resettling approximately 20,000 refugees each year, and is one of two agencies authorized by the U.S. Department of State to resettle unaccompanied refugee children. Since 1980, MRS has provided services to unaccompanied children in specialized and culturally-appropriate programs nationwide.
