​​The Providencia Group (TPG) is proud to be collaborating with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, part of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and its nationwide provider network to ensure Unaccompanied Children in their care are released to approved sponsor families in a safe, efficient, and timely manner.

THE REUNIFICATION PROCESS

The Sponsor Services Program evaluates a potential sponsor’s ability to provide for the child’s physical and mental well-being, as required by law. The process for the safe and timely release of an Unaccompanied Child involves several steps, including the identification of sponsors; sponsor application; interviews; the assessment (evaluation) of sponsor suitability, including verification of the sponsor’s identity and relationship to the child (if any), background checks, and in some cases home studies; and post-release planning.

Home studies of potential sponsors are required under certain circumstances. All released children are eligible to receive Post Release Services.
