The Mission of the Refugee Children Center is to provide a healing embrace and a dignified welcome to children and their families who have made the perilous journey from the South of the U.S.-Mexico border and identify as Indigenous from Meso and South America, historically, culturally, and through their Indigenous language or who speak Spanish. We aim to offer our Center as a hopeful refuge that provides support through a holistic approach with basic needs, opportunities for personal development, enrichment activities, and access to legal and social services, thus easing our children and their families’ transition to a new life in the United States.
To be a place that provides refugee children in the United States support through a holistic approach while empowering them through education and an understanding of collaboration.
Pastor Fred Morris came out of retirement to North Hills, California in 2014, to start a new faith community. In July 2015, the San Fernando Valley Refugee Children Center, Inc. was launched with three refugee children and two part-time former staff, Amanda Escobar Romero and Abril Escobar Romero, as a response to the surge of unaccompanied minors arriving in unprecedented numbers at the U.S.-Mexico Border.
