Community and Stakeholder Engagement: Internal and External Communication When Serving Unaccompanied Children
Thursday, June 17th - 2:00-3:30pm CST
There are multiple current opportunities for providers to partner with the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to serve unaccompanied children (UC), including as contractors or grantees providing foster care or residential shelter services, but one only needs to watch the news to understand that the issue has significant political implications. Licensed providers in the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) network have certain obligations and limitations regarding public communication. Stakeholder engagement and community partners are a critical part of any program’s success. How can you proactively communicate internally and externally to ensure your staff and partners have accurate information? What are key myths to bust to help build understanding of and support for your work?
If you are a provider who would like to join in this work as aligned with your capacity and expertise, but you have questions and need to learn more about what it means to contract directly with ORR and serve unaccompanied children, this webinar is for you. Participants considering providing UC care through ORR will learn general information about key elements of internal and external communication and have an opportunity to ask clarifying questions of current ORR-contracted UC providers. There will be ongoing opportunities to access technical assistance after this webinar.

Innovations in Affirming Care for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Queer Youth: Where we are today as a community and as a field
Wednesday, June 23rd - 2-3:00pm CST
ACRC members often lead the field, laying an innovative and courageous path for those serving children in residential care and communities. This is a turbulent period in our Nation’s fight for diversity, equity, and inclusion. June, the month of PRIDE and the anniversary of the tragic shooting at the Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Florida calls for examining where we are today. What has changed? What are we doing different? Collectively, we can learn from one another. This 60-minute live webinar will feature panelists comprised of child serving providers and community organizations who will describe their work creating affirming programs from different perspectives and processes. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas as a commitment to build strong communities and affirming environments for our LGBTQ children and Families.
Recruiting Staff and TFC Families to Serve Unaccompanied Children
Thursday, July 1st - 2:00-3:30pm CST
Providers across the country have expressed interest in serving unaccompanied children, but it’s important to understand the ways in which service delivery differs from domestic foster and shelter care. Staff and Transitional Foster Care (TFC) families require specialized training and bilingual language capacity to effectively serve unaccompanied children (UC). How might your recruitment and training strategies differ in a UC program? What steps do licensed providers in the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) network take to ensure their staff and foster parents are prepared to provide high quality care?
If you are a provider who would like to join in this work as aligned with your capacity and expertise, but you have questions and need to learn more about what it means to contract directly with ORR and serve unaccompanied children, this webinar is for you. Participants considering providing UC care through ORR will learn strategies for recruitment and retention of staff and foster parents and have an opportunity to ask clarifying questions of current ORR-contracted UC providers. There will be ongoing opportunities to access technical assistance after this webinar.
