What is CUPS?
CUPS is a Christian organization founded in 1989 to improve the quality of life in rural communities along the Mexico-U.S. border. Maximizing the use of capital and human resources, CUPS unites mission trip volunteers with the people of Mexican and U.S. communities in projects that touch the lives of thousands of people. Health and education projects are a primary focus, and these are designed to meet community defined needs. Other humanitarian projects and programs, such as disaster reflief, are also important in our work.
