of a team working to change the world for the better?

Behavioral Health team!
In response to the humanitarian crisis at America's ports of entry,
Devereux provides short-term shelter care services for
unaccompanied children who have come to the United States without a
parent or legal guardian. Devereux provides extremely high-quality,
trauma-informed residential and educational services for
unaccompanied children, with intense supports for their social and
emotional health. We also ensure they receive excellent and
immediate physical healthcare including pediatric, dental and
nutritional supports for every child.
Devereux's ultimate goal is to ensure every unaccompanied child who
receives our services is successfully and quickly discharged into
the loving care of their family sponsor and, during the short time
they are with us, have received best-in-class medical, therapeutic,
recreational and educational services designed specifically to
address the traumas they have sustained during, and often before,
their migration journey. This is a very high benchmark to set, but
Devereux has partnered with leading immigration rights advocates
and legal defense nonprofits to ensure children in our care have
access to the finest legal supports offered by our country.
