About Us

First Friends of NJ & NY is a 20+ year organization that provides visitation and support to immigrants in ICE detention at 4 northern NJ jails. We run the oldest and largest ICE detention visitation program in the country. A key component of our work is providing these same immigrants with post-release assistance such as pickup from jail, short-term accommodation, transportation to reunite them with family members, cash assistance and connections to other social service agencies. First Friends also advocates on behalf of ICE detainees, pushing for improved conditions at jails.
