About Us


Friends of HEPAC is a non-profit organization that supports communities along the border. Located in Nogales, a city separated by the border into Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora, Friends of HEPAC hosts and leads delegations through various sites and organizations directly impacted by the border. We strive to educate people about communities along the border and allow delegations to personally see and experience life on both sides of Nogales. Proceeds from our educational trips go directly to supporting HEPAC, a non-profit community center located in the impoverished neighborhood of Bella Vista in Nogales, Sonora.
