Support for Youth and Families of Undocumented Status


For immigrant children, fear of being forcibly separated from family through deportation is clearly traumatic and threatening, especially due to many immigrant populations’ emphasis on the centrality of family. Many youth risked their lives to come to the United States to reunite with family members and have themselves often escaped traumatic and life-threatening events in their home countries that propelled them to seek refuge among family and relatives in the U.S. 

CCR has prepared these materials to explain the unique stresses undocumented youth face, as well as provide a set of strategies and resources for adults that work with this population.
