In 2009, Morrison was approached by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to provide residential and unification services for youth, aged 13-17, who have crossed the US border without parents or guardians. ORR was seeking an agency that successfully provides the array of services needed to support the challenges youth entering this country might present. Morrison was recognized as already being successful in this area, and we decided to add ORR programs to our suite of services.
Our highest priorities for the youth entrusted to our care are to keep them safe, provide them with the legal, medical, and educational resources that they deserve, and unite them with family or other guardians as soon as we possibly can.
