Mission Statement

The Interfaith Committee for Detained Immigrants is a non-profit, faith-based organization of staff and volunteers called to respond actively and publicly to the suffering of all individuals and communities affected by immigration detention, deportation, and post-detention through pastoral care, advocacy, public witness and other activities.

Description

The Interfaith Committee for Detained Immigrants (ICDI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that ministers to immigrants caught in the broken immigration system. ICDI is composed of five different programs, each focusing on a specific aspect of the detention and deportation process.

The Post-Detention Accompaniment Network (PDAN) is an accompaniment and housing program that provides case management services and hospitality for immigrants in the process of legalizing their immigration status.

Court Watch program provides a presence in the immigration courts as accompaniment to people who are detained and as a reminder of the humanity of the people whose lives are in limbo.

Jail Visitation is a ministry of presence and listening. Volunteers provide pastoral care at McHenry, Kenosha, and Dodge County Jails.

Deportation ministry provides pastoral care to people on the day of their deportation and accompanies families as they are torn apart.

Unaccompanied Children's Interfaith Ministry provides spiritual care for children who have been detained and are without a parent or family. This program is a partnership with Heartland Alliance.
