Posada Esperanza Family Shelter
Casa Marianella’s Posada Esperanza family shelter serves homeless immigrant women and children escaping violence in a cluster of renovated houses in a residential neighborhood in East Austin. The recent purchase of a fourth shelter house allows Casa Marianella to serve 100 people a year with housing and full supportive services. The $7,000 grant from Girls Giving Grants will fund one additional national service program case manager as well as providing $500 toward direct client needs. The g3 grant will help Casa Marianella continue providing comprehensive case management to help families transition from crisis to independence. Families come from Africa, Asia, Central America and other parts of the world.
