Coming to the United States after experiencing trauma, witnessing violence and war, and/or living in refugee camps with limited resources, and very limited health care access and educational support, migrants who have fled their countries in search of a better life often arrive with a range of health or psychosocial needs. Through federal funding, Endeavors has launched a new program area to address wellness within this population.
Leading our migrant wellness programming will be a team of specifically trained and licensed clinicians who have proven experience in victim services, therapeutic regiments, and vital educational resources, as well as in recognizing human trafficking indicators. Our team has extensive knowledge and expertise to provide high-quality, trauma-informed, culturally, and linguistically appropriate mental health care to migrant families navigating the U.S immigration process. Endeavors has served migrants since 2012.
Endeavors‘ Migrant Wellness Services program provides the following Federally Funded Program Services to individuals and families seeking asylum in the U.S.:
- Comprehensive Mental Health Screening and Evaluation
- Individual and Family Therapy
- Human Trafficking and Victim Educational Classes
Programming will initially include the following cities, with future expansion into California, the Northwest, North East, and the Midwest taking place in late 2021:
- El Paso, Texas
- San Antonio, Texas
- Houston, Texas
- Charleston, South Carolina
- Charlotte, North Carolina
To serve the migrant population efficiently and effectively, Endeavors has partnered with a national network of social service non-profits dedicated to serving migrants and vulnerable populations. These organizations are deeply rooted in their communities and specialize in providing excellent care to migrants seeking protection. This partnership model allows Endeavors to reach clients in 10 additional cities across the U.S.:
- Chris 180
- Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska
- Refugee Services of Texas
- Lutheran Services of Florida
