NASW UPDATE ON FAMILY SEPARATIONS. YOUR INPUT REQUESTED

NASW is horrified by the continued separation of children and families at the United States borders. NASW CEO Angelo McClain spoke with AP News yesterday (the article is linked below) about the potential trauma impact that these policies may have, and NASW has released resources and ways social workers can get involved in various capacities. A huge influx of immigrant children who have been separated from their families are also coming to Michigan, primarily to two agencies that have immigrant foster care programs (Bethany Christian Services and Samaritas). Please visit their websites for more information on needs and ways to help out.

 

Additionally, NASW-Michigan is working on compiling local and state resources around this critical issue and we hope that social workers will lend their expertise wherever possible. If you have suggestions or know agencies who are working to support the separated families, please email dbreijak.naswmi@socialworkers.org with details.
