Interfaith Committee for Detained Immigrants (ICDI) is a faith-based, welcoming and inclusive LGBTQ-affirming organization where all faiths are welcome. Our mission is to accompany men and women through detention, deportation, and post-detention. We currently have six programs, all aimed at safeguarding the dignity of the detained immigrant and his or her family.
Post-Detention Accompaniment Network (PDAN) assists individuals who are being released from detention. We respond to the diverse needs of individuals released from immigration detention as well as families who come to visit loved ones for court dates. PDAN maintains a hotline from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday. There are five teams – one team is on call each week of the month. Each team provides emergency transportation and accompaniment to individuals immediately after being released from ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) custody.
For those released with family elsewhere in the United States, we provide post-detention support packs as well as a train/bus ticket to return to family while they await a future court date.
We are looking for coordinators to join one of our teams!
The Coordinator is responsible for answering the hotline and contacting the volunteer assigned for accompaniment. The coordinator must be available by phone to assist with logistics, including purchasing train/bus tickets and organizing overnight accommodations if necessary. Are you an excellent communicator? Are you responsible? Can you ensure you will attend to your phone when you are on-call? If you answered yes to these questions, this might be the volunteer opportunity for you!
*ICDI reimburses volunteers for all approved expenses incurred during the accompaniment including: mileage, train/bus ticket, etc.
