Mission: The mission is opening doors to opportunity, so individuals can achieve their dreams.
Programs: Unaccompanied minors program- serve youth who enter the united states without parents or adult guardians and have been detained by immigration officials. As one of the largest providers of shelter services to unaccompanied minors in the united states, our program encourages the development of personal, social, academic, and vocational skills while the minors await reunification with their families and/or resolution of their legal case. Minors are provided with education, counseling, casework management, recreation, and medical services. Our program honors and respects individual cultures and traditions, as well as offers opportunities for acculturation. These humanitarian services are provided in a nurturing, strength based environment.
the organization operates 68 programs with over 4,155 employees in six states impacting over 6,000 children and families on a daily basis.
Southwest Key strives to connect partners from the community to provide comprehensive services to the children and families of the surrounding area. They have been professional, friendly, and accomadating to work with.
Southwest Key is a growing and thriving institution in the Austin community. I've attended culturally rich and relevant events there, participated in educational workshops, and joined with others to use the space for production rehearsals. It is a versatile, dynamic place that fosters creativity, cooperation, and community. I know I'll be there again soon, and so will my friends and family!
