The Story of the shelter: Casa Samaritano (Samaritan House) is a way-station shelter northeast of Mexico City. It is run by four Catholic Sisters of the Sacred Heart and led by Sr. Louisa. The shelter was created to help migrants traveling north from Mexico and Central America.
As people flee north from violence, extreme poverty, and drought conditions in their countries, they stop at shelters along the route to get a warm meal, a place to rest a few hours, first aid, and a change of clothing. Casa Samaritano is one of these resting places—and since COVID it is one of the few shelters still open.
These men, women and children are only trying to find a safe place to live. They risk everything, including their lives, even though the hope of their final destination (the United States) is in doubt. But still they come.
Please help if you can.
