Faithful Friends is a group of volunteers that visit detained immigrants at the Yuba County Jail. Each volunteer is matched with and visits one of the immigrants. Regular visits by the volunteer builds a relationship and provides encouragement and support to the immigrant.
The Yuba County Jail contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and provides beds for detained immigrants. The immigrants are from all over but are held in the Yuba County Jail.
There are currently several Faithful Friends volunteers from FUMCL. However, more volunteers are needed.
