Because of Amanecer…

Because of Amanecer

In 2017, nearly 3,000 Unaccompanied Migrant Children (UMC) arrived in LA County after fleeing their gang-ridden Central American home countries and enduring brutal journeys to U.S. borders, during which many suffered abuse and exploitation from the criminals who transported them. Seeking asylum, UMC must communicate their ordeals to attorneys and immigration court. Severely traumatized by their horrific experiences, they are unable to do so.

Amanecer provides intensive, trauma-focused therapy/case management at partner legal clinics to help approximately 150 UMC each year recover from their traumatic experiences, communicate with their attorneys, and acquire critical skills to adapt to their uncertain futures.
