Detention Visitation

Young asylum seekers in shelter

We continue to visit detainees in Adelanto.

The main purpose of visiting immigrants in detention is to help end their isolation and let them know they are not forgotten. This calling requires pastoral work of presence where you are invited to show up, pay attention and listen deeply.  It is humbling work where prayers and stories are shared, connections made and decisions taken by those impacted, to achieve the best possible outcome for the detainee and the family.The mission of visitation is to walk with the detained person and connect them to resources that will contribute to their release.
