Annunciation House is a place where the poor, undocumented, and the homeless receive care and hospitality for a given period of time. Time of services based on individual/family need.
Eligibility: Individuals who are poor, homeless, refugee's, and undocumented who need help.
Casa del Refugiado, which was started in the spring of 2019, houses very short-term guests that have just been released from ICE custody. It is our largest facility, with a capacity of around 500 people. Guests here typically stay just 1-3 days, long enough to address their basic needs and connect with family or friends elsewhere in the U.S. This house has high turnover and unpredictable numbers, with the guest population entirely dependent on ICE’s release schedule each week. This house is staffed by a combination of dedicated community volunteers, short-term volunteers, and full-time Annunciation House volunteers who live in a dedicated section of the facility.
Casa Oscar Romero was opened in early 2019. It houses both short- and long-term guests and is perhaps the most varied of all the houses, in terms of the guests it sees.
Casa Teresa houses the offices of Annunciation House. It also contains an apartment that volunteers can use as a retreat on their days off, or as a place to gather for recreation and community time.
Donation Requests by Annunciation House: Many people ask about the needs of our people and our houses. Almost any item that is basic to a family household we can use and use abundantly. It is a joy for us to be able to share our needs with you. And it is God's grace that allows us to beg from our poverty on behalf of our guests and the many who depend on us, if even for but a single night of hospitality.
