🔥 New! 👨👩👧👦 Group Friendly 👨🏻💼 Individual Friendly 🤝🏻 In-Person Opportunity 🏠 Remote Opportunity
Volunteer Contact Form 👨👩👧👦 👨🏻💼 🏠
By filling out this form, you let us know that you, your family, or your group wants to get involved with a local LIRS partner or affiliate. Volunteer opportunities vary depending on needs, and some positions require applications, additional training, and/or background checks to ensure the safety of the vulnerable populations we serve.
🔥 Fresh Change 👨👩👧👦 👨🏻💼 🤝🏻 🏠
The new Fresh Change program offers an opportunity to welcome immigrants with a bag of new clothing. Using our toolkit, volunteers can pack as many bags as they’d like and send them to our neighbors at the border. You can even host a Fresh Change packing party!
Remote Interpretation 👨🏻💼 🏠
Border Servant Corps is a hospitality center for refugees and asylum seekers in Las Cruces, NM. Immigrants from all over the world make their way to the southern border, and as a result translators and interpreters are invaluable to the work of welcome. Sign up here to interpret via phone or Zoom.
Ambassador Program 👨🏻💼 🤝🏻 🏠
The LIRS Ambassador Network is a community of passionate advocates, volunteers, and leaders from all walks of life, united by their passion and commitment to stand in solidarity with LIRS and the newcomers we serve. Click here to learn more or to apply.
Pen Pal 👨👩👧👦 👨🏻💼 🏠
Immigrants held in detention centers need to know that we remember and care about them, particularly while Covid-19 prevents in-person visits. Join or start a Pen Pal program to become a friendly voice of welcome to detained immigrants.
Detention Visitation 👨👩👧👦 👨🏻💼 🤝🏻
In-person visits to immigrants in detention are currently on hold; however, virtual visits are often an option! Moreover, we want to be ready to spring into action as soon as restrictions are lifted. Learn more about how you can do that here.
Foster Care 👨👩👧👦 👨🏻💼 🤝🏻
Sadly, the journeys of refugees and asylum seekers often separate families, leaving children unaccompanied in the United States. Foster care is a mutually life-changing commitment that offers immigrant children a loving home, while pursuing family reunification. Learn more here.
Border Immersion Program 👨👩👧👦 👨🏻💼 🤝🏻
Iglesia Luterana Cristo Rey offers a personal experience of daily life at the United States / Mexico border. Hear from immigrants, border patrol officers, legal experts, and more. Visit their website for details.
Hope for the Holidays 👨👩👧👦 👨🏻💼 🤝🏻
Every autumn LIRS collects thousands of holiday cards as well as donations for gifts to send to individuals and families being held in immigration detention centers around the country. There's no better way to get into the holiday spirit than sharing the joy of the season! Find out more here.
