Team Brownsville was founded in July 2018, by a small group of like-minded educator volunteers. Since that time, our membership and our mission have expanded with the help of volunteers and donors from around the globe.
Team Brownsville volunteers help families and individuals legally seeking asylum in the United States. The team currently manages three programs: breakfast at the bridge, dinner at the bridge, and assistance at the bus station.
Breakfast at the Bridge: Providing a basic breakfast to families living outdoors the Gateway International Bridge.
Dinner at the Bridge: Volunteers prepare, deliver, and serve delicious meals, prepared with love, to families waiting for the chance to legally cross the border and seek asylum.
Assistance at the Bus Station: As asylum seekers are released from detention at the bus station, in Brownsville, our team greets them with a smile and whatever assistance they need to get to their destinations.
