WHAT DOES
DSAS DO?

We are a non-profit organization of volunteers in the Coachella Valley that offer assistance to immigrants.

Desert Support for Asylum Seekers strives to support people through the immigration process by offering legal support and referrals, housing and sponsorship, penpal, visitation coordination and commissary support for people in detention, fundraise and donate for people in a migrant shelter in Mexicali, and advocate to our elected officials on behalf of immigrant voices. We work closely with people detained in Calexico, California at Imperial Regional Detention Facility.
