Paper Houses Across the Border (Paper Houses) is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, with no paid employees.

We work directly with the people in need, especially children and those who already are working hard to improve their situations.

We provide school cafeterias, free school meals, support children's shelters, support shelters for children, the elderly, the homeless with special needs, education for the blind, local schools, food for the needy, and we facilitate mission trips to the colonias.
