Annunciation House

Our Mission

In a Gospel spirit of service and solidarity, we accompany the migrant, refugee, and economically vulnerable peoples of the border region through hospitality, advocacy, and education. We place ourselves among these poor so as to live our faith and transform our understanding of what constitutes more just relationships between peoples, countries, and economies.

Our Houses

Annunciation House actually operates several houses of hospitality, each of which has a different focus, although these distinctions are fluid and change with the needs of our guests:

Get Involved

Annunciation House is run entirely by volunteers who commit themselves to an experience of transformative service and solidarity. Some of our volunteers are local community members, while others come for a time to both live and work in our houses of hospitality. Volunteers form a close-knit community: besides the common ground of living and working together, they meet every morning for reflection; take time off together each month to relax and have fun; and often form friendships that last for life.

Board of Directors

Annunciation House’s twelve-member Board of Directors is made up of former Annunciation House volunteers who have a deep understanding of our history, our mission, and the joys and challenges of living in our houses of hospitality.
