Caminos

The Home has been providing hope and healing to at-risk children in need for 156 years. As needs evolve, we are always there, fulfilling our mission of ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of children who are vulnerable to abuse and successfully work with those who have experienced trauma so they can lead the lives God created for them.

Using our expertise of working with at-risk children and families, we have joined the national Caminos®program that serves unaccompanied children who have already migrated to the United States from other countries.

We will serve migrant children in need as an accredited partner of the Board of Child Care under a subrecipient grant with the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Our job is to provide home studies (HS) and post release services (PRS) for children who entered the United States without a guardian and will be living with a sponsor family already in Alabama. Like our Family Bridges program, the Home’s trained staff will ensure their sponsor homes located in communities throughout Alabama are safe and stable environments by performing quality home study assessments followed by comprehensive social services.

These children are at risk of becoming or are already victims of trafficking, child abuse or neglect, and some may have a diagnosed physical or intellectual disability. Our team has been trained to work with children at high risk since our inception, which makes this an ideal partnership. 

Participating in the Caminos® program is congruent with the Home’s 156-year mission of providing hope and healing to at-risk children in need.

Caminos® Nacional

Caminos® Nacional is a federal grant managed by the Board of Child Care to provide services for children who enter the United States without a guardian. This population is commonly referred to as recently migrated youth. The grant is funded by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Caminos Nacional utilizes the skills developed by BCC in delivering the program and extends its reach by providing guidance, and consultation to accredited partner organizations like the Presbyterian Home for Children.
