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

Border Compassion is an all-volunteer organization inviting, coordinating and guiding faith communities to cross-over. We stand at the border with the asylum seekers, and form a flexible, nimble, and efficient web of compassion.

"Love is the standard operating procedure, concern for others is the behavioral norm, and compassion changes everything."
-Robert Keck, Sacred Eyes
