Advocates for Immigrants in Detention Northwest
The Advocates for Immigrants in Detention Northwest (AID NW), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to serving detained immigrants at the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC.) When immigrants are unable to hear the voices of family and friends because of lack of resources, we end that silence. When immigrants do not have anyone able to visit them, we end that isolation. When detained immigrants are identified as eligible for release from detention, we work to obtain their release, including sponsorship when the immigrants have no one else they can depend on. When immigrants are released from the NWDC, hundreds or even thousands of miles from friends or families, our Welcome Center and Housing Network provide a safe, supportive environment until reunification with those loved ones can happen. With our incredibly dedicated staff and volunteers, AID NW offers immigrants a touch of humanity during and post-detention.
