Community for Children, Inc.

We are a Community for Children – ALL children. Our team includes doctors, nurses, social workers, lawyers, educators, clergy, and activists focused on the urgent needs of immigrant children and their families on the US southern border.

A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization 

We support immigrant families

We support immigrant families across the southern border, including immigrant families at the Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center in McAllen, Texas.  The Respite Center is often the first to offer a hot meal and warm shower to immigrant children and families after their release from federal custody. They come hungry, exhausted, traumatized and in need of human kindness.  Our team is there to help with medical needs and more.  We show them that people do care.

We provide medical care

We provide screening for injuries and infectious diseases.  We also provide funding to support the presence of certified nurse midwives at the Respite Center to offer prenatal triage and education to pregnant immigrant women.  We also provide connections to clinics across the country.

We connect for continuing care

Our work doesn’t end when immigrant children and families leave our clinic. Along with our partners, we are helping to create a national network of clinics and academic medical centers willing to provide care in their destination communities.  The pregnant mothers, special needs children and those with an urgent need for medical follow up are provided with scheduled appointments in these facilities, once they reach their destinations.
