Sarah Jackson - Casa de Paz - eTown

Casa de Paz is a hospitality home for families affected by immigrant detention. They provide free housing, transportation, a phone to call families and food for their guests. Their house is located directly across the street from the immigrant detention center in Aurora, CO making it easily accessible to those who stay with them. For anyone coming into town to visit a loved one who is detained, or have just been released from the immigrant detention center, Casa de Paz is there for them. They open the doors to their home because they believe in the dignity of all people and the reunification of families.
