The Interfaith Committee for Detained Immigrants provides advocacy and services to people in immigration detention system. It believes that everyone, regardless of national origin, has basic human rights, including a livelihood, family unity, and physical and emotional safety.

Formed in 2007, ICDI in Chicago operates programs including a men's and women's Post-Detention Program, Pastoral Care at the McHenry County jail, a Court Watch Program, and the Broadview Staging Center Program. Event proceeds will benefit two of the ministries that require the most funding.

"There is no regular source of income, so this benefit will greatly assist with funding for the overall operation," said Sister JoAnn Persch, executive director of ICDI. "Especially for those detained at McHenry County jail, who receive money in their commissary accounts for basic needs, as well as for the two new transitional homes, which opened in May, for those immigrants released but have cases pending and no family in the area."

The post detention program has grown in response to the needs of people in the area, finding themselves without family, shelter, or support system during the transition process.
