COVID19 update 5/12/20: We are currently providing hospitality to at least one refugee, released from detention, who has tested positive for COVID19 as well as others who may have the disease. In addition, we have been working with partners in Juarez to serve migrants and refugees there, many of whom are in the MPP program. We would greatly appreciate donations of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) both for current efforts in Juarez and to prepare for COVID19 patients in our houses. 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.
