Who, What, Where

Annunciation House is a network of shelters located in El Paso, Texas that primarily provides assistance to newly arrived migrants from Central America.

Their facilities provide food, sleeping accommodation, and referrals for legal and medical support.

The organization has close links to local faith communities, particularly the Catholic Church.

Annunciation House has received international attention and news-coverage as a result of incidents related to the 2014 American immigration crisis, the Trump administration family separation policy, the U.S.-Mexico border crisis, and the National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States.

As of January 2020, Rubén Garcia has been Director of the shelter for more than 40 years.
