Casa Marianella is a volunteer-driven emergency homeless shelter in east Austin, serving recently-arrived immigrants and asylum seekers from around the world.

In addition to shelter, Casa offers access to legal and medical resources, food, clothing, English classes, and other resources. Casa Marianella started in 1986 as one home for men, women and children, but as Casa has grown, a nearby branch site was created in 2003 for women with children (many of whom are escaping domestic or cultural violence) and named Posada Esperanza. Casa Marianella currently consists of three neighboring houses for men and women without children, while Casa’s Posada Esperanza branch has expanded to four neighboring houses. Our agency as a whole shelters an average of 325 individuals annually as well as providing assistance and services to the community.

SERVICES

Posada Esperanza 

Posada Esperanza is a full-service transitional housing program for immigrant mothers and their children, escaping domestic or cultural violence. Our goal is to create a nurturing and hospitable environment for families, while moms work toward self-sufficiency and empowerment.
