Trauma Plagues Many Immigrant Kids In U.S. Illegally


In response to the influx of Central American children seeking refuge in our country, NPR (National Public Radio) broadcasted a story to inform and educate listeners on how local social service organizations in the area are responding to this growing issue.  Thom Harr, Family Services, Inc. (FSI) Chief Executive Officer and Daliris Amaya, Program Manager for FSI's Youth Services Division were interviewed for this segment.  Mr. Harr and Mrs. Amaya shared their first-hand experience, both from the organization's view and from the front line staff who are directly dealing with the challenges faced by children and families relocated to this area by the government.
