Migrant family leaving the shelter

As members of the Assumption family, we are called to follow in the footsteps of our founder, Father Emmanuel d’Alzon. His vision was clear: to go wherever God is threatened in man and man threatened as the image of God. Today, that mission continues, and we invite you to join us in making a difference.

St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church have been providing a haven for migrants on the border who are trudging through the scorching desert, stripped of their possessions, hope, and, often, their families

The Situation: Migrants arriving at the U.S./Mexico border face unimaginable challenges. They traverse scorching deserts, often stripped of their possessions, hope, and even their families. St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church stands as a beacon of compassion, providing a haven for these weary travelers.

Here is how our volunteers who follow footsteps of our founder are working to make a difference in migrant’s life. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our mission, embodying the compassion and dedication needed to support migrants in their time of greatest need. These selfless individuals devote countless hours to ensuring that our guests feel welcomed, cared for, and supported on their journey. They make sure that every penny, every material is accounted for the betterment of refuge’s situation.

 Our Response: Our dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to offer warmth, sustenance, and support. We provide warm meals, clothing, and a welcoming place where migrants can rest. But it doesn’t stop there. We assist them in finalizing travel plans and ensure safe transportation to airports and bus stations.
