We are invited by Seafarers International House (SIH) to visit adults who have been detained due to immigration documentation issues at the Elizabeth Detention Center. If you are interested in participating, please contact SIH’s social worker: Makda Kelib, (212) 677-4800 x1207.
All participants must bring a government issued photo ID when they come to the detention center. We will meet at SIH (123 E 15th Street, New York, NY 10003). Please arrive no later than 9:00 am. We will gather in the conference room on the mezzanine level and will board our vans outside the agency and leave at 9:15 am to go to the detention center. If you have not attended a visitation to a detention center before, we will hold a training session at SIH on the day of the visitation, at 8:30 am in the mezzanine level conference room.
