Where We Serve
Bokenkamp Children’s Shelter in Corpus Christi opened in 2006 and provides a safe, temporary environment for hundreds of unaccompanied minors. Children, ages 0-17, receive lifesaving support at Bokenkamp including food, clothing, medical care, case management, education and psychological and spiritual care.
Children at Bokenkamp are surrounded by professional staff 24/7, to encourage their personal and academic development and empower them with skills and resources to take the next steps toward productive lives once their legal cases are resolved.
