"The Homestead "temporary influx facility" is the largest shelter for migrant children in the country. Homestead is the only such facility run by a for-profit corporation. It is also the only one that receives no oversight from state regulators."
"The operator is Comprehensive Health Services. The FL-based company dispatched medical teams to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina, to Haiti after the earthquake, & to Balad Air Base in Iraq. And in 2016, it entered the migrant shelter business."
"The current Homestead contract with the Department of Health and Human Services is worth up to $220 million."
