Join a Visitation Ministry

In a country where you are a stranger, when your name is called and you are told that you have a visitor, you feel like you’re going from darkness to light.” -Former Detainee, Locked in a Box

A kind listener can help restore dignity and hope to a person enduring the long days of uncertainty and isolation in immigration detention. LIRS partners with congregations, NGOs and community groups across the nation to accompany individuals currently detained through regular visits, staffing detention hotlines and writing to detainees.
