Opportunity to interact with the guests is abundant. While most guests do not speak English, they unequivocally understand the language of love, passion and compassion. 

Because access to the facility is not directly through Juarez, Mexico but through a small US port of entry at Santa Teresa, New Mexico, safety has never been a real concern when visiting the facility. In fact, the facility is not too far from the port of entry where mostly industrial commerce (i.e., maquiladoras) is prevalent. As some of the images will show, families with children are comfortable traveling to the facility. 

The facility welcomes any and all who would like to visit or volunteer in any capacity. Special visits are available via the volunteer liaison or with the Pastor Galvan directly who will gladly facilitate an excursion to the facility.
