The Haven

En español:

The Haven is Wayfinder’s foster care program for unaccompanied minors recently arriving in our country. These children embark on perilous journeys to the United States, seeking refuge from violence, poverty, natural disasters, abuse, discrimination, gender-based violence, human trafficking and other dire circumstances. They are one of the most vulnerable groups of children in foster care and need secure, nurturing environments so that they can thrive.

The impact of fostering:

  • Help a refugee feel secure, appreciated and connected as they navigate life in our country.
  • Provide emotional support and a place free from violence.
  • Establish a significant, healthy relationship with a child who may be grieving or traumatized.
  • Assist with education, planning, and providing resources.
