Our volunteers are at the Detention Center every weekday from 3-7 p.m., waiting to welcome released immigrants. The AIDNW Welcome Center is in an RV stationed right outside, and the immigrants know this is a place where they can get help–to be inside out of the weather, to make free phone calls, and to get snacks, clothing, backpacks and toiletries. In addition, we arrange for their transportation to the bus station, airport or taxi, and when needed, we provide temporary housing until more permanent arrangements are made. And on the weekends, others come and provide snacks and emotional comfort to family members who are visiting.
