Children living in mixed status households

Introduction: Exploring the lives and missed opportunities for support services in children living in mixed status households (one or more parent lacks legal status) in the U.S. and the effects upon them during parental deportation 
Methods: Mixed methods-quasi experimental   Qualitative interviews and survey
Findings: Children in this population lack access to public programs targeted to promote resilience such as preschool, pediatric routine well child exams and immunizations and public supplemental food programs (WIC, food stamps, emergency food boxes) and after school programs due to parental fear of being discovered and resulting deportation.
