Guaymas Hospitality Ministry

Guaymas Hospitality Ministry

As a volunteer, you will provide overnight care and shelter for the children of Guaymas, Mexico and their families when they come to the Phoenix Shriner’s Clinic for medical care. We arrive at the Casa to pick up a parent and a child, and we help them by opening our home so the family has sleeping accommodations, bath/shower, and meals. These two very tired people show us such gratitude for a simple bed, a few meals and a great deal of love.

Responsibilities and activities include meeting the family at the Casa on a Friday afternoon and returning them to the Casa early Saturday morning. Volunteers are asked to prepare a dinner and small breakfast and a snack for their return to Guaymas. Planning an activity for the child is recommended during their one-night stay.

You do not need to speak Spanish, only the willingness to interact with the Spanish-speaking family and the desire to share your home with them for one night.
