The Unaccompanied Refugee Minors program (URM) of Ascentria Care Alliance is the only foster care program in New England that exclusively assists refugee and migrating youth.
The URM is responsible for refugee, asylee and trafficked young people under the age of 18 who are in the U.S. with no parent or guardian. Ascentria places the minors in foster care with specially trained families and provides cultural and linguistic support.
Foster homes in Massachusetts are urgently needed for refugee children. Applicants must be a legal permanent resident of Massachusetts.
