Centro de Paso
Sometimes children need to be removed from their families or dangerous situations. These emergency, or crisis, placements last only for a short period of time, until the police or social services can complete their investigation to determine if the child will be safe with their families and current environment. During this “investigation period”, our Centro de Paso provides a safe place for the children to stay. They are given a warm bath, hot meals, new clothes and a special toy or blanket, which they can keep to remember their time with us positively. Unlike our Transition House, the Centro de Paso is a refuge for children and youth of all ages.
