The Comedor y Albergue San Francisco (St. Francis Shelter and Kitchen) joined as a Migrant Justice partner in April 2021 and provides meals, clothing, and other necessities in addition to first aid and psychological accompaniment for people in migration in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico.  Because the shelter is just 300 meters away from the train station where “La Bestia” train passes carrying people trying to make it to the United States, it is the first point of humanitarian aid in the state of Sinaloa for people traveling to the border and one of a very few shelters for people in migration on the Mexican Pacific coast.  

UUSC’s support strengthens psychosocial support and emotional accompaniment for people in migration who are especially vulnerable and will allow for increased social communication to generate awareness and sensitivity among the communities where people in migration travel and reside in Mazatlán.
