Experiencing Interruptions?

An American House

Despite the risk of litigation, Annunciation House opened its doors to the immigrant, the refugee, those who have entered the United States illegally. Join us as we watch volunteers struggle with their place of privilege in the house while migrants prepare for the next leg of the journey: going deeper into America.
