About Us


Supporting the Detained

Detention Lifeline is a free volunteer-run hotline for immigrants and asylum seekers incarcerated in detention centers in the United States. We work directly with individuals and families who need help fighting for release. The hotline currently serves people incarcerated in 14 detention centers.

As of January 2019 we've received nearly 7,000 calls from people in urgent need of help. Please consider becoming a remote hotline operator or donating to help us afford the collect calls.
