Afghan Foster Care - Social Media Posting Misleading

Dozens of concerned congregation members have sent MCC concerned messages about uncared for or unaccompanied youth from Afghanistan. Please see message below responding to that. There are not unaccompanied youth arriving to the U.S. from Afghanistan.

Hello to those interested in youth from Afghanistan,

The Social Media posting was misleading. We are not anticipating receiving any unaccompanied youth from Afghanistan.

If you would be interested in becoming a resource parent to Sacramento County youth that are in need of quality care short-term, and sometimes a permanent home please apply or keep your application in the Binti system.

If you have already started the process in Binti and are only seeking youth from Afghanistan, please let me know via email as well as we would need to withdraw your interest.
