World Refugee Day – A day to take action
Learn more about RST's Unaccompanied Children's Program
An Unaccompanied Child (UC) is defined as a child under 18 years of age who has no immigration status and has been separated from their biological parent. While there are UCs from all over the world, children from countries such as Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador have arrived at the Texas border with Mexico in record numbers in recent years. By law, the United States Health and Human Services department must provide for the custody and care of these children unless a sponsor can be found while they go through the immigration process. Less than 10% of UCs receives post release services.
