International Social Service, USA (ISS-USA) has partnered with Lumos to offer safe repatriation and reintegration planning for children returning to Guatemala after a forced separation at the US-Mexico border. Through the program, ISS-USA and our Guatemalan partner are providing reunification assessment services and intensive case management in Guatemala for children reuniting with families.
ISS-USA has also partnered with a Honduran NGO to provide cross border case management for youth between 13-17 years old who are returning to San Pedro Sula, Choloma, or Tegucigalpa Honduras. The program will provide 6 months of case management. In addition, ISS-USA is accepting referrals for children and youth returning to other areas of Honduras on a select basis.
Social work case management services include developing and implementing reintegration plans that address each family’s needs individually. These interventions can also prevent dangerous re-migration or the unnecessary institutionalization of children.
ISS-USA believes that all children and families separated, or facing separation, regardless of circumstance or citizenship status deserve services that help them stay safe and together.
