Abstract

A vast number of parents/children are been affected with high levels of anxiety, depression, and stress when their families are been separated due to deportation. Therefore, I conducted two sets of interviews, a parent component that consisted of eight questions and a child component that consisted of eleven questions. The interviews took approximately 10 minutes each. I interview a small group of six participants, three adults and three children who have gone through the devastated experience of having a family member deported. Hearing the participants experiences I learned that there are not enough programs in the community to help families who are been deported. Through interviewing families who have been affected by deportation, I decide to create a program that would help families that are being separated due to deportation. The program Parents United will provide with resources such as legal advice, financial assistance, and counseling around the community.
