The Unaccompanied Minor Children Program provides temporary residential care and other supportive services to Unaccompanied Minor Children (UMC) who are under legal custody of the Federal Government. Working in collaboration with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement, our program provides a safe and nurturing environment for 33 youth in a Basic Shelter program located at our licensed residential facility in Yonkers, NY as well as a Transitional Foster Care program for 40 youth in certified foster homes in the Bronx. In both programs, we provide therapeutic and educational services and other supports that youth need to achieve success through an array of strength-based and targeted interventions as well as link them with family members and/or other sponsors in the United States so they are able to move forward with their lives and thrive. The Nurse will provide direct triage or first aide medical care and medication administration along with direct medical support and coordination of medical appointments to persons supported in the UMC program.
