Our Mission

The mission of Border Compassion is to invite faith-communities to Cross-Over at the border to offer a compassionate humanitarian response to families living at the Posada del Migrante Shelter, which houses up to 300 people.

About Us

"Love is the standard operating procedure, concern for others is the behavioral norm, and compassion changes everything."
