Welcome Strangers

Welcome Strangers is the story of Casa de Paz, a home where asylum seekers and immigrants are welcomed after being released to the streets from the Aurora, Colorado ICE detention facility. Sarah Jackson and a team of volunteers offer safety, food and clothing, friendship, and help to reunite them with their families. It's also the story of Oliver, a Cameroonian asylum seeker that came and never left, welcoming and caring for other asylum seekers throughout his agonizing wait to be reunited with his wife and daughter. This film moved me deeply, illustrating the harsh realities immigrants face and how one person can make an immense difference.
