About the organization
Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Children and Families Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) Unaccompanied Children (UC) Program’s National Network of Community Based Residential Care Providers
Description of agency/office:
The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), an office of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) under the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, provides new populations with the opportunity to achieve their full potential in the United States. ORR provides care and placement for unaccompanied children who enter the United States from other countries without an adult guardian.
As returned Peace Corps Volunteers, you are mission-driven professionals with a focus on human-centered services. Based on your skills and experience, you’re invited to apply and learn about the crucial roles ORR is recruiting for across the national community-based provider network, and how you can be a part of their important work. This will focus on ORR’s work to assist Unaccompanied Children (UC) who arrive in the United States without a guardian and are placed in youth residential programs.
ORR is helping to recruit needed permanent employees to serve in these programs across the country. Staff are hired to provide various roles (from youth care worker to case manager) with the shared purpose to nurture and care for children in temporary residential settings as children complete the process to be unified quickly and safely with family or sponsors in the United States.
ACRC is working directly with the Administration for Children & Families to engage providers from our wide network in expanding unaccompanied children (UC) licensed beds and supporting the needs of unaccompanied children entering the US.
