Miami… Catholic Charities is prepared to assist in-country Haitian organizations and families by providing temporary shelter in the Archdiocese of Miami for Haitian children who have been identified as at-risk.
The Archdiocese of Miami is not advocating for a mass exodus of at-risk Haitian children or placement of these children in foster care or adoptive homes, but rather, an orderly temporary humanitarian parole process which will protect the most vulnerable victims of this tragedy.
Charities is currently cataloging all offers of homes for fostering/adoption of
Haitian children. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
