The Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project is committed to the safety and well-being of our clients, staff, and community. In response to federal, state, and local orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily closed our offices for physical visits and most staff is temporarily telecommuting.
We are working with local stakeholders to maintain communication with our clients, especially those isolated in detention. We have adapted our services so that we can continue to be there for our clients during these challenging times. We are aware that this crisis, like many, will disproportionately affect the most vulnerable in our society, including those incarcerated in immigration detention. We are also advocating for the human rights of our clients and all immigrants. If you are interested in reading more about our advocacy efforts during these unprecedented times, click here.
Adult Program Services
The Florence Project is currently conducting legal orientations by telephone. In addition, we have created a telephone hotline for people in immigration detention in Arizona only to talk to someone from the Florence Project about their legal questions. Due to high volume, the hotline is unable to provide legal orientations to non-detained immigrants or to family members calling on behalf of detained adults. Family members are encouraged to share the hotline instructions with their loved ones in detention in Arizona to that (s)he can call us directly.
If you have an adult family member in detention in Arizona, (s)he can communicate with the Florence Project and receive legal information during this time of isolation by following these instructions:
