Our current volunteer opportunities:
Visit: Community visitation programs ensure that people in immigration detention can maintain family and community ties and provide civilian oversight to a system that has little public accountability.
Answer Hotline Calls: Our national hotline is a safe, confidential, and free service offered to people in immigration detention. It connects immigrants in detention to their family, resources, and abuse documentation support. We receive over 7,000 calls per month.
Pen-Pal: Our pen-pal program is designed to connect volunteers with people in immigration detention who do not yet have visitors, to give them hope and a connection to the outside world. While we have an affiliated visitation program in over 40 of the largest immigration detention facilities, there are still approximately 150 facilities without a visitation program.
Host: Serve as host for a few days, weeks, or months to people eligible for release.
Help Us Grow: We also seek volunteers to help with fundraising and friendraising for our network.
