Hope Border Institute
The Hope Border Institute (HOPE) brings the perspective of Catholic social teaching to bear on the realities unique to our US-Mexico border region. Through a robust program of research and policy work, leadership development and action, we work to build justice and deepen solidarity across the borderlands.

Causes: Advocacy, Migration, Social Justice


At HOPE, we put the migrant, the refugee and the asylum seeker at the center of our work for justice and dignity.

This year alone, we:

  • Welcomed thousands of asylum seekers and helped them navigate their entrance to the US after being forced to wait in Mexico.

  • Met with Vice President Kamala Harris to call for more humane border policy and a new approach to addressing the root causes of migration from Central America and Mexico.

  • Accompanied migrants in Ciudad Juárez by providing COVID testing, mental health support and sustainable food infrastructure through our humanitarian fund.

  • Published original research on the impacts of border policy on refugees in our region.

The work is hard, but your support keeps us hopeful. By donating today, you’re investing in a more just future at the border.
