These programs enable people of all faiths to have access to pastoral care within their faith tradition.

Jesuit Refugee Service/USA provides direct service via the Detention Chaplaincy Program. The JRS/USA chaplaincy programs provide pastoral and religious assistance to meet the needs of non-citizens detained by the Department of Homeland Security in three U.S. federal detention centers located in Texas, Arizona, New York. These programs enable people of all faiths to have access to pastoral care within their faith tradition. JRS Chaplains spend time providing religious items, also processing requests for religious diet necessities.
