Freedom for Immigrants began piloting a bond fund program in 2010; in its early years, we would help families raise funds to pay the bonds of their loved ones. In 2013, we began serving as the obligor for some of these bonds, and in June 2018 with the support of the James Irvine Foundation, we officially launched our National Bond Fund program.
Freedom for Immigrants provides each individual that it bonds out with critical wrap-around services through its proven case management program to document, support, and enhance the likelihood of success for their case. Sometimes this support also includes housing with a sponsor volunteer.
Freedom for Immigrants is devoted to abolishing immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit-driven system. We are the only nonprofit in the country monitoring the human rights abuses faced by immigrants detained by ICE through a national hotline and network of volunteer detention visitors, while also modeling a community-based alternative to detention that welcomes immigrants into the social fabric of the United States. Through these windows into the system, we gather data and stories to combat injustice at the individual level and push systemic change.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
