Jewish Family & Children’s Services of the East Bay (JFCS/East Bay)
By: Holly Taines White and Caryn H. Crosthwait
This four week e-learning course is designed for practitioners who will be counseling or representing unaccompanied children who are now in removal proceedings.
Last week, I visited the family detention center in Artesia, New Mexico, and saw first hand how our country is responding to the issue of women and children seeking refuge at our border. I also had the opportunity to see in action how the Catholic Church is responding to these same women and children.
