Migration and Refugee Services is a leader in providing placement and care for unaccompanied, refugee, and immigrant children. With support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Department of State, MRS provides a continuum of care through its collaboration with a national network of 12 state licensed Unaccompanied Refugee Minor (URM) foster care programs.

The URM foster care programs are separate from domestic foster care programs in that they have been developed by agencies with expertise in working with foreign-born children. Foster families are oriented towards the particular needs of refugee and immigrant children. Contact Children's Services / 202-541-3081 for more information.
