In a Gospel spirit of service and solidarity, we accompany the migrant, homeless, and economically vulnerable peoples of the border region through hospitality, advocacy, and education.
Prospective volunteers, in an effort to better understand the work of the volunteers, often ask what a day at the houses is like. What do volunteers do?
First, it is important to understand that Annunciation House is an all-volunteer organization and the volunteers live and work in the houses; there is no paid staff. The volunteers at the houses work under the supervision of the House Coordinator, a volunteer who has typically worked at the house for at least a year and a House Mentor, part of the long-term Core Community of the houses. The volunteer staff is responsible for the operation of the house, attending to the needs of the guests, coordinating the meals, picking up food donations, doing house and car maintenance, and all the other things that come up with a house of hospitality for 50 people.
