Please join us for a Hutto Visitation Program Orientation on Saturday, April 21st from 2pm to 4pm. Our program pairs community members with asylum-seeking women who are locked up in Hutto Detention Center in Taylor, TX. Volunteers advocate to challenge the detention system, monitor human rights in the facility, and extend support in a very challenging time in someone’s life. The vast majority of the women in Hutto have fled from Central America, so our primary need is for Spanish-speaking volunteers, though other languages are also needed.

Volunteers must commit to visiting the detention center at least once a month. It is open 8am until 8pm, seven days a week.

Volunteers must be conversationally proficient in a language other than English and/or attend the training with someone who is bilingual that is willing to visit in partnership and interpret for you. They should also RSVP.

Please pass along the date to anyone who may be interested in breaking the isolation of detention. Let us know you're coming, there are space limitations. You must RSVP via the link above, not on Facebook. If it is full, be on the lookout for our next month's training. RSVP HERE.
