Update: as of May 2, 2019, we are no longer accepting short-term volunteers for the months of May, June or July due to the overwhelmingly positive response we have already received (thank you!) (We would consider making exceptions for people who can stay for 6 weeks or more.)
If you are interested in volunteering in August or later, please read this document and contact us about two months before you are interested in volunteering (contact instructions in PDF). We are not scheduling more than about two months out due to the unpredictability of the need.
We are ALWAYS accepting applications for year-long volunteers!
Original post: Beginning in summer 2018, we have seen an increase in the flow of refugees arriving at the El Paso border. As ICE detention facilities filled, the number of refugees being released by ICE increased. As of the end of February 2019, 400-700+ refugees per day are being sent to Annunciation House.
We are urgently seeking additional short-term volunteers to help us provide hospitality to these refugees. For more information, please read this document (PDF).
