Who are the migrant mothers and children?
We serve migrant mothers with children and pregnant women who:
- Have been released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
- May travel to join family members already in the United States
- Are awaiting an immigration hearing
What we do:
Our Hospitality Center gives travelers a safe place to rest, rehydrate, eat, and care for their children. We provide a change of clothes, hygiene items, and a chance to wash up.
Volunteers greet the travelers and help them contact family members and arrange bus transportation. Women and children receive travel bags filled with essential items before they leave.
Travelers who are unable to depart the day they are released may spend the night at the home of a trusted volunteer or at Casa Alitas, a small home in Tucson staffed by volunteers and Catholic Community Services.
