Federal data obtained by Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting show the locations of 87 child care facilities and 15 transitional foster care programs across the nation that house and supervise unaccompanied children under the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The information shows shelters and other types of facilities that contracted with the government as of February 2018, with some more recent updates. The counts of children presented below are not limited to children who have been separated from their parents under the government’s recently rescinded policy of family separation. The counts include many of those children but also include thousands of children who came to the country as unaccompanied minors and are housed in the same federally funded shelters.

Capacity and occupancy data is missing for some facilities; AP and Reveal will continue to update this information as part of an ongoing effort. Have an update to our list or a tip about shelters that house migrant children? Email border@revealnews.org.

Correction, Sept. 5, 2019: A previous version of this map cited the incorrect federal program under which unaccompanied migrant children are housed and supervised.
