About us

The New Hampshire Bail and Bond Fund (NHBFF) frees bond eligible immigrants who are being held in Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention in Dover, NH and Plymouth, MA.


The person's only "crime" might be coming to the U.S. to escape violence and persecution in their native country. Without a bond, asylum seekers might remain in detention - sometimes in deplorable conditions - for two years.

The NHBFF also bails out people detained in the Valley Street Jail who cannot afford bail.

The NHBFF is also happy to support anyone detained while participating in an action supporting the Black Lives Matter movement in New Hampshire.
