Shelters For Hope


Shelter Construction project

Currently, we are helping shelters in Sonoyta, Mexico, that together will be able to handle 200+ migrants and refugees at a time. There have been this many people recently, and we know the number could continue to grow in the coming months. We worked on a building and bunk beds at Casa del Migrante. Now we are working at Casa San Pedro to help this shelter address its urgent need to expand capacity to provide temporary housing and shelter to the growing number of migrants in this border town. This video gives you an idea of how the situation was when we started this work.  We take our homes and beds for granted.  This is the reality for many people.  Please donate and share with your family and friends. 
Every single donation helps!


Changes Happening Now

These pictures show the Casa San Pedro shelter now, including bunk beds that were just built in the last six weeks. And they show the first stage of construction of the new ramada--preparing the site and pouring the slab. Soon to follow will be a new dormitory and bathroom. Finally, those who will benefit the most from the new construction are families waiting to present for asylum -- more than 40 children were at the shelter a few weeks ago.

Making A Difference

Donate Medical Supplies

We want to build and stock a first aid unit and need your help.  We are looking for shelves, medical tools, medicines for men, women, children plus other medical supplies. If you can donate funds to purchase any of the above or if you have access to donations of this type please reach out! Donations are 100% tax-deductible (depending, of course, on your personal financial situation).  If you are a doctor or nurse interested in helping, we would love to hear from you!


Help Provide Food

For $18 a month, you can provide 3 meals a day to one person.  Donations of any size are welcome via paypal.  If you would like to mail or deliver any food, clothing, or other supplies to our office in Arizona, we can get it to the shelter quickly.


Shelter Construction Fund

Our current construction project is to build a large ramada (63'x30') to provide sheltered space for meals and kids' activities. Soon after, we will begin construction on an additional set of dormitories with bunk beds, a family area, and a medical unit.  The migrants help by building bunk beds and tables. Donations to our construction fund will make a huge difference--the need for this additional space is urgent!



Our Roots

We are a group of like-minded individuals that found ourselves trying to find a way to help migrants and refugees in the desert.  We do not own or manage the shelters that we help.  Our only goal is to give whatever assistance is most needed to enable the human dignity that everyone should be entitled to.

Here at Shelters For Hope, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in helping migrants and refugees at our Southern border. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
