Misión de Caridad provides programs and resources for refugee, migrant and vulnerable women and children on the Mexico side of the U.S. border. MdC’s mission is to advocate, support, facilitate and implement programs to improve the lives of women and children refugee asylum seeker, migrant and local populations living on the Mexico side of the US border to help them live self-sufficiently free of the fear of persecution, violence and extreme poverty by:
- Increasing awareness about the refugee crisis at the US border through sharing information on our platforms and our strategic partnerships
- Offering humanitarian relief, as needed, while we implement holistic programs that lead to independence and self-sufficiency among those we serve
- Providing job training, educational opportunities, and health and wellness programs so families we serve can earn a fair wage, improve their lives and live healthy and well
- Strengthening the next generation by providing early childhood education, educational support, tuition assistance, tutoring, and enrichment programs so youth can grow, develop and reach their full potential
