What is the Direct Support Fund?
Lend Your Support
Make a tax deductible donation to help people directly affected by detention.
The Direct Support Fund provides financial support to people in immigration detention, recently released from detention, and their families. Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC) along with our allies are working hard to fight for an end to immigration detention at the policy level, but there is a way you can help right now. People in detention and their families face massive financial hurdles during their ordeals. Price gouging within the facilities of simple necessities–phone calls, stamps, and commissary food to supplement their inadequate meals–are all part of the inhumane practice of immigration detention. Additionally, without their wage earner, families struggle to put food on the table or pay basic bills or transportation fees to visit loved ones in often rural detention centers.
