First Friends of NJ and NY upholds the inherent dignity and humanity of detained immigrants and asylum seekers. They promote compassion and hope through advocacy, resettlement assistance, and visits to the jails where immigrants are detained.
Our parish Migrant Center supports the work of First Friends. First Friends needs help, by donations of writing materials for detainees – paper, envelopes, stamps, and when funds permit, phone cards – so they can keep in touch with family members. If you can help, please leave donations in the boxes which will be found at the doors of the church.
