Volunteer

Become part of the rebirth of Detroit – Join the Southwest Detroit Immigrant and Refugee Center.  

Our three legal clinics are powered by the work of a dedicated team of volunteers. We are always looking for help from more people who believe that everyone deserves justice.

At our clinics we need:

  • Legal Consultants take the lead in helping our clients work through the legal issues that they bring. Many are attorneys or in law school but it’s not required. Experience with the legal or immigration systems is helpful.
  • Translators translate between our mostly Spanish speaking clients and mostly English speaking staff & volunteers. French and Arabic language translators would be helpful as well.
  • Researchers assist legal consultants by finding answers to a specific policy or process question, finding forms online, and helping with data entry. Often it is helpful for the legal consultant and researcher to put their heads together to find the best way to address the concerns that clients bring.

We need volunteers, donors and partner institutions.  We work with many 501(c)(3) public charities, faith-based groups, government entities, and local businesses that share our goals.
