Fully Funded: Supplies and Support for Border Shelter

Help and hope have a lot in common.

The Problem:

Families seeking asylum in the United States often complete the journey with very few resources. The Posada del Imigrantes Shelter in Mexicali is a two-story 34-room former motel that is currently housing up to 188 people desperate to escape the violence and poverty of their home countries.

The Solution:

Border Compassion is a start-up ministry founded by Sr. Suzanne Jabro, a Sister of Joseph of Carondelet, in partnership with many others. This organization is a grassroots effort to respond to the needs of families who have migrated to the border crossing at Mexicali. 

Border Compassion coordinates monthly visits to the shelter to assist the cook in grocery shopping, and supply essential clothing, medicines, and hygiene supplies.

The Impact:

In addition to providing a compassionate humanitarian response to the women, men, and children who are seeking asylum in the United States, Border Compassion encourages faith-based communities to collaborate and engage in activism for systemic change aimed to bring about more just immigration policies.
