Providing On-Demand Support to Unaccompanied Migrant Children and their U.S. Sponsors
The Providencia Group (TPG) has been awarded a contract to manage and staff the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement’s (ORR) National Call Center and Sexual Abuse Hotline. ORR is a part of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. These call centers provide unaccompanied children, sponsors, and their family members with direct access to subject matter experts and community resources that prioritize child safety and well-being.
