A recent webinar that focuses on the unaccompanied migrant children and conducted by the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Catholic Charities, Catholic Relief Services, and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is now available for viewing. This webinar discusses why unaccompanied children are coming to the United States, where they are staying, what services the Church is providing, and how you can help. Panelists include experts on the root causes of migration from Central America and the emergency, social, and legal services available to these minor children.

This resource provides a helpful overview of the problem related to unaccompanied migrant children who have been arriving in increasingly larger numbers at our southwest border. Use it as an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the situation.
In a recent letter, Pope Francis spoke out on the issue of migrant children arriving at our southwest border, calling it a humanitarian emergency.
The pope is not the only Church leader to speak out on this issue; many of the bishops in the United States have commented on this situation as well. Use this resource as a guide to what some of them have had to say.
This resource provides an overview of the important way in which foster care and family reunification can play in addressing the issue of unaccompanied migrant children, and also highlights some of the ways in which you can help.
Children have a special place in the moral tradition of the Church. Migrant children are a particularly vulnerable population who are at risk of exploitation and abuse. The Church's social teaching tradition can be used as lens to understand the duties that we have toward migrant children.
In addition to children, migrant families are arriving large numbers at the southwest border, as many of them flee violence in their homeland. This resource provides an overview of the situation and highlights some of the important ways that we can accompany and support them on their journey.
This resource provides a broad framework for understanding the ways in which the Church, civil society, and the government can help to protect and provide for migrant, and particularly refugee children.We need your help too.
