Giftcards for local retailers will be distributed by local IRC offices for families taking in unaccompanied minors. Providing giftcards for people taking children who have been separated from their families provides aid with dignity - allowing children to have a say in what they purchase.

The IRC oversees post-release services for unaccompanied children, which includes: 

  • connecting them to legal providers to help with their asylum claim;
  • providing unaccompanied children and sponsors basic orientation on their rights before referring them to legal services organizations who can directly work on their case;
  • conducting home visits on foster parents to ensure that the home is safe for minors;
  • training, information sharing and guiding of sponsors of unaccompanied children around issues ranging from education, legal assistance, and child welfare laws.

By purchasing a gift card today, you’re helping the International Rescue Committee provide programming to refugee and asylee children in the United States.

In addition, we encourage you to call your Representatives to demand that they protect vulnerable families from separation, and sign up to take action now.
