COVID-19 information (updated 8/6/20): Because we provide essential services, we have continued to operate throughout the pandemic. We are still accepting applications for year-long volunteers. We take thorough precautions to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread in our houses and have provided hospitality, with appropriate quarantine procedures, to several guests with known COVID-19. In addition, during this time we have been working extensively with partners in Juarez to serve migrants and refugees there. We would greatly appreciate donations of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Click to read more.
Annunciation House is a volunteer organization that offers hospitality to migrants, immigrants, and refugees in the border region of El Paso, Texas. Since its founding in 1978, it has provided shelter, clothing, food, and other basic necessities for hundreds of thousands of migrants, mostly from Mexico and Central America. It also participates in advocacy and education around immigration issues and seeks to be a voice for justice and compassion, especially on behalf of the most marginalized of our society. Rooted in Catholic social justice teaching, the volunteers of Annunciation House live simply and in community, in the same houses as the guests we serve.
