Chapter 4 Part 1: Home Studies and Post–Release Services for Unaccompanied Children

By USCRI January 26, 2023

The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) and The Children’s Village present chapter four, part one, of Where We Stand: A 20-Year Retrospective of the Unaccompanied Children’s Program in the United States. The retrospective will review the Unaccompanied Children’s Program from the passage of the Homeland Security Act (HSA) of 2002 until today.

It assesses 20 years of legislation, policies, litigation, and, most importantly, the U.S. federal government’s care of unaccompanied migrating children, with a view toward the next steps and improvements for the years ahead.

The fourth chapter looks at services offered to unaccompanied children. Part one will cover home studies and post-release services.
