ABOUT THE PROGRAM: ORR Immigrant Youth Services - PASO
PASO is a mid-level security (staff-secure) residential facility for adolescent boys. The youth are primarily from Latin American countries and occasionally from other areas of the world. They reside in our care, living in a 12- bed residential facility. To ensure the safety of the youth in the program, we maintain stricter security measures, such as higher staff to client ratio for supervision. This placement is for youth who do require a higher level of individualized support, but who are not appropriate for other, more acute, restrictive levels of care. Must be comfortable working with potentially adjudicated youth.

About Us:

Through our commitment to equity and inclusion, we support our communities to move beyond disparity and oppression and work with compassion, integrity, and dedication to social justice through the implementation of goals and policies.
