Posada Esperanza

On March 18th at 4:00 PM, volunteers from Peace Lutheran Church are welcome to join us at Posada Esperanza, the family shelter of Casa Marianella. they are a full-service transitional housing program for immigrant mothers and their children, escaping domestic or cultural violence. Occupying four homes in East Austin, they currently house 14 mothers and nearly 30 children!
Youth and adults are welcome to help out. We will be doing anything they require of us, which differs depending on the day.
Here’s a description from their website:

“Volunteers at Posada aren’t just an extra pair of hands—they’re the reason we’re able to support our residents so thoroughly. We’re always looking for volunteers to serve as tutors, homework helpers, appointment advocates, and up-for-anything-on-the-fly-helpers. If you’re interested in being part of our arsenal of volunteers and are energized by an environment where needs can change day-to-day (or minute-to-minute!), reach out us to us at posadaesperanza@casamarianella.org.”

Due to the nature of their work, Posada Esperanza can only facilitate up to 8 total volunteers, so contact Jacob or Pastor Carolyn if you are interested in going!
