This USCRI Backgrounder outlines the roles, responsibilities, and challenges of case management within the shelter network for unaccompanied children (UCs) coordinated by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). Reunification with a family is the primary goal. The primary tasks of case managers are (1) to establish contact with the child's parent(s) and to identify a potential sponsor; (2) to confirm that the potential sponsor offers a safe and stable home for the child, and that the home will remain safe and stable; and (3) to submit documentation, primarily the Family Reunification Packet, that corroborates that the placement is suitable, and is used by ORR to evaluate and approve the placement.
