MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The United Methodist Home for Children in Lower Allen Township is now preparing to host a group of immigrant children currently held at the United States border with Mexico.

An exact number has not been put on how many Central American children the area could see, but the school says they expect them to come some time in August.

In a statement, the school's president and CEO David Reed said:

"We understand the issue of immigration has raised many questions nationally. However, in staying true to the Home's history and mission, we are committed to providing a safe and caring environment for any children who, through no fault of their own, are in desperate need of help while explorations are being made for their future."

In the coming weeks, staff at the home will travel to Washington D.C. for training.
