Caminos Nacional

Caminos Nacional is a federal grant managed by the BCC to provide residential services for children who enter the United States without a guardian. This population is commonly referred to as recently migrated youth. The grant is funded by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Caminos Nacional utilizes the skills developed by BCC in delivering the program and extends its reach by providing guidance, and consultation to accredited partner organizations like Wellroot Family Services.

We are here to support youth and families by connecting them to local support networks and access to culturally appropriate community services. For more information, please contact Kenya Williams at kwilliams@wellroot.org.
