Casa Mariposa Detention Visitation Program

The Casa Mariposa Detention Visitation Program provides support, friendship and encouragement to immigrants in detention in hopes of breaking the cycle of isolation.                                                       

Through weekly visits (before the pandemic) and now more than ever, letters, we strive to alleviate the isolation felt by immigrants in Eloy Detention Center (Eloy, AZ). Letters and visits show individuals they are not forgotten, and most importantly, that someone cares about them. Outside of detention, we support immigrants alongside Casa Mariposa, the Florence Project and other community partners. Money given to this program will boost individuals as they return to life on the outside, help reunite folks with their loved ones, and bring hope and connection to immigrants living in detention. 

CMDVP's efforts are supported by generous donors like you, local and across the country, and grant funding from Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS) and West Coast Mennonite Central Committee.  We are deeply thankful for this ongoing support.

CMDVP is also a proud member of the Freedom for Immigrants network.


The situation in immigrant detention is dire and there is no such thing as social distancing in detention.  Our visitors have not been allowed into Eloy Detention Center since mid-March. And yet, we are committed to increasing our support through cards, books and financial resources. 

Cards remind folks they're not alone. Books occupy minds. Financial resources help people buy phone cards and toiletries (extra soap or hand sanitizers!) and food items from the commissary. 

Can you hep us offer support in these ways?
