The CWS/IRP Religious Services Program (RSP) was established in 2004 and operates in U.S. government-administered immigration detention centers across the United States. On-site staff coordinators and volunteers provide immigration detainees with structured and consistent religious opportunity and enhance overall religious program quality, accommodating all religious beliefs. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security funds the program, being carried out in collaboration with Jesuit Refugee Service. The RSP Administrator is based in Washington, D.C.
