JCEP partners with several organizations to reach the kids and the community in Juarez.

In January 2005 Scott and Joni took a mission trip offered through Menlo Park Presbyterian Church (MPPC) which was organized by Missions Ministries to build houses for the homeless there. Missions Ministries is a Colorado organization that hosts many churches and other organizations to build approximately 50 houses per year. It was on the MPPC trip with Missions Ministries that we felt called to help the children in the community of over $1 million people who migrated to live in crated houses to work in American factories for $10/day. We then partnered with Silicon Valley Community Foundation to set up JCEP to help educate the children of this community.

Missions Ministries offers Americans short-term mission trips to Juarez, Mexico. Our volunteer teams travel across the border to spend 2-3 days building high quality, simple homes for the poor, hosting children's programs or offering medical aid, while sharing the love of Jesus Christ. All we do points to helping meet the physical and spiritual needs of the Mexican people."
