APANO’s is committed to coordinating a robust network of respite shelter/housing and to crowdsource resources for the continued representation of all of the detained peoples at FDC Sheridan. Upon their release, our detained peoples will need medical care, housing, clothing, transportation assistance, toiletries, meals, and other resources, in order to be able to heal and gain strength for their immigration advocacy fights ahead.
Please fill out the volunteer form to assist with the respite network and an APANO South Asian Sheridan Support Committee Member or Field Organizer will be in touch with you.
One thought on “Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO) is seeking volunteers for Sheridan Post-Detention Respite Network”
When will volunteers be contacted I left a message about a week ago that my family can host one or two refugee families after they get out of detention. I haven’t heard anything back yet and wanted to coordinate as we are moving to a bigger place. We currently have two guest rooms with beds, but we will have 3-4 guest rooms as soon as we move next month.
