Casa de Paz began in 2012 as a small, one-bedroom apartment offering hospitality to families separated by immigrant detention. Our work has always been to host families whose loved ones are being detained and individuals who have been recently released. In 2017 we moved into a larger, rented house with more space so that we would not have to turn people away.

Today, Casa de Paz provides visits and emotional support, shelter and meals, access to phones, WiFi, computers and transportation. Detention is a difficult time that tears families apart and creates a financial burden, so we have always offered our services free of cost. Since we first opened our doors we’ve hosted over 1,600 immigrants and the need only continues to grow.

Several years ago Sarah Jackson went on a trip to the US/Mexico border with a humanitarian aid organization working on immigration issues. She spoke with people who had been deported, learned about people’s reasons for migrating and heard the dangers they face in doing so. She saw first-hand families being separated.  Then she returned to Colorado and couldn’t return to her normal life after this experience. She decided to do something about it because she believes families should be together. So she opened Casa de Paz.  To keep the doors of the Casa open, Sarah started Volleyball Internacional. 100% the profit from the volleyball league is donated to the Casa and used to pay the operating expenses.  Sarah’s hope and prayer is to help ease the isolating experience of immigrant detention, one simple act of love at a time.

Oliver, originally from West Cameroon, joins our team as our full-time Casa host. He has a positive attitude, easy-going nature, a desire to make others feel comfortable and of course a big, beaming smile! He is a joy to be around.  In exchange for free room and board Oliver helps out in the evening hours with our guests and volunteers. He truly cares about each and every person that passes through our home. One of the things he does to make our guests feel welcome is by preparing homemade meals that are incredibly delicious.  Oliver currently is a team lead for the cleaning crew at the hospital. In his spare time he plays in table tennis tournaments and is the reigning champion in Denver! You would never know about his many victories because he’s so humble. But don’t let his quiet demeanor fool you—he’s a competitive athlete with a desire to do his best… and he always does.
