All Hands AZ
Providing A Safe Space To Land
All Hands AZ is a collective of organizers and volunteers who are supporting the asylum seekers and migrants traveling from Central America. These people have been granted legal temporary asylum by Homeland Security and are being released to their families in order to pursue their asylum case in front of a judge. They are officially lawfully “documented” aliens and we are committed to helping them in their final steps toward their American Dream.
WHAT WE DO
Our volunteers have helped by hosting thousands of people in their homes and we have several hundred volunteers who are welcoming, feeding, clothing, donating, transporting, and medically caring for these people, daily. We are fully supporting these asylum seekers for 12-48 hours as they wait for their families to purchase their airline or bus tickets, so that they can be reunited with their loved ones.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
We are always looking to build our volunteer efforts and we need as many compassionate, loving, and selfless people on our team as we can find. Whether it's translating, hosting a family, serving food, or transporting people in your car, we need what you can offer. If you would like to join us, we would love to fit you into the process that best suits your talents and desires.
We have several ways for you get involved in the support efforts for the asylum seekers and migrants who are arriving from Central America. Below, you will find the opportunities to get involved in our underground process. Please click the links below to be directed to leaders of the different processes:

DONATIONS COME IN MANY FORMS...
AND WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF THEM.
We are a volunteer lead and run organization and we don't earn any money from this process. Each person is here to aid those with the greatest need, at the moment. All of our donations and gifts come from the generosity of our community.
We use your donations to purchase needed items like the following:
- air travel
- bus tickets
- paper goods
If you are interested in becoming a monthly donor, we have monthly expenses that we could use help with in order to keep our operation open and running.
Please click the image above to consider donating to our cause. Every dollar is put to use immediately and allocated with the utmost care and respect.
We are committed to giving each of the asylum seekers that we help a new, clean outfit to complete the final leg of their journey. Most have been wearing the same clothes for weeks, and some even months, and we rely on the generous clothing donations from the community to achieve this goal. We are always in need of adult SMALL and MEDIUM clothing, and all sizes for kids. Please remember that we have to be aware of seasonally appropriate clothing and that these people will be wearing the items on a plane or bus, so they must be practical, as well. Any clothing that is not used is redonated to local charities in the community which support veterans, battered women, homeless youth, and a prom closet for children who need formal clothing for their dances at school.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our Amazon registry by clicking the image above.
We have so many opportunities and different ways to volunteer and none of this would be possible if it weren't for the kindness and selflessness of those in our community. If you would like to spend and hour with us, or even coordinate a donation drive at your school or place of business, we need your help. We are always building our volunteer efforts and are grateful for any time that you give us.
All volunteers are required to submit a background check that we provide and pay for, or we can take a valid fingerprint card. We do this to ensure the safety of the asylum seekers, as well as the safety of the volunteers. This is delicate and sensitive work and we have to ensure that we take care in protecting everyone involved.
