About us


The Socorro Foundation is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Charitable Organization that serves families in need. We are a primarily volunteer ran organization, structured with detailed programs and led by an Executive Director, Chief financial director and several volunteer leaders. We focus our efforts in areas where the need is the greatest. By partnering with volunteers and donors we are able to reach the most vulnerable group of people. We work to make sure every donation and volunteer is utilized in the most effective area. Through our local teams of volunteers we act as the hands and feet of our donors who cannot be in the trenches but want to put action to their passion.


Our volunteers and donors work together to Educate, Serve with kindness and bring awareness to important causes. We serve by providing safe shelter, feeding families, clothing families, and providing nessary basic care for people in need. Our programs include services to both families seeking asylum and community families needing Diaper assistance, pads, and hygeince needs. 

We advocate by participating in different Donor Led Campaigns and help Educate people by teaching basic life skill classes, cultural awareness, Intro English, Human Trafficking Awareness, basic laws of the United States and Asylum 101.


We are uniquely located in South Texas where there is always a need to help families in search of a better life. We opened a Family Refugee Shelter  & Education Center right on the border, Where we care for the most vulnerable group of asylum seekers. However, we are not limited to our location, we have crossed international bridges to serve families seeking asylum waiting in Mexico or sleeping on the bridge.  In previous years, we have served in Houston after the 2017 flood and in other countries throughout Central America. 

We have been serving families in need seeking asylum at the border. We have opened a Family Refugee Shelter & Education Center where families receive needed supplies, communication with their family/sponsor, showers, meals, shelter and Education. We continue to educate families on policies and procedures of the United States and family planning in case of an emergency.
