Across the country, migrant children are still being detained behind metal fencing, including children under the age of 5 held in “tender age shelters.”

These are among the thousands of children who were forcibly separated from their parents – and even siblings – when they crossed the border.

Even now, some of these separations may be permanent – and separations may continue*.

What’s Next for these Traumatized Kids

Some of the children will be sent to Connecticut.  Their legal status will remain uncertain, their traumas debilitating. And, they will be denied what we believe to be the rights of every child in Connecticut to legal protection, education, health care and supports. 

At the Center for Children’s Advocacy, we fight for the rights of the most vulnerable children within Connecticut borders.  Our clients include immigrant children, homeless and abused kids, and LGBTQ teens.

We defend them using a brigade of pro-bono attorneys trained and supervised by CCA. We do it through the advocacy work in the CT Legislature. And we do it in coalition with counseling services and school systems. 

Can you help us protect and defend these kids?

Thank you for your continued support and interest in helping Connecticut's vulnerable children.
