Bringing together community organizations, ministries, and churches to strengthen their effectiveness for benevolence, education, and information.
Root International seeks to unite community organizations, ministries, and churches to strengthen their effectiveness within their own communities and the international community. As a U.S.-registered non-profit organization, Root International seeks donations for the community outreaches currently supported in Pennsylvania, Texas, and the Navajo nation, while looking for ways to expand the scope of our outreach to other areas of need around the world. Currently, Root International, in coordination with Root International for Mexico, supports more than 15 dining facilities that provide free meals to at-risk children, youth, and the elderly in Juarez, Mexico, across the Mexican border from our office in El Paso, Texas.

The church where our current office facility is located is turning over the space to government organizations working with illegal immigrant children. We have been asked to vacate by July 15th!
