We are always looking for board members who are interested in being actively engaged with the board. While we welcome anyone who is willing to help out, our greatest needs are in the areas of legal/Contract review, communications (i.e. finding material for the Facebook page, preparing newsletters, translating material into Spanish, or web design), or non-profit management expertise. We are also in need of Spanish-speakers who are willing to travel to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico a couple times per year. Because our board members live in various locations, we usually hold meetings over Skype so there are no geographic limitations on board members.


ISSF is a 501(c)3 public charity.

  • Donations are urgently needed by the shelters we support. Both monetary and in-kind donations are accepted.
  • In-kind donations most urgently needed at this time include diapers, milk, personal hygiene items, blankets, children’s toys, and construction materials.
  • The shelters are also in need of volunteer labor to assist with building repairs.
  • ISSF has very low administrative costs. We do not maintain a physical location nor do we have paid employees, and all work is done by a volunteer board of directors. Because of this, close to 100% of the money donated goes directly to the organizations that we support.

Do you know of a foreign organization serving abused women and children or orphans that would benefit from the support of a 501(c)(3)?   ISSF provides technical assistance and resources to organizations in developing countries.   To be eligible, the foreign organization must be organized and operated as a charitable organization and meet the same criteria as a 501(c)(3) would.   Interested organizations must be willing to submit required reports to ISSF and must undergo a determination of eligibility by the ISSF board.   Affiliates must also speak Spanish or have someone who speaks fluent English.
