La Posada Providencia
La Posada Providencia answers the Gospel call to “welcome the stranger.” Founded in 1989 by Sister Carolyn (now Hilary) Hooks, CDP, La Posada provides a safe, nurturing environment to immigrants, asylees and asylum seekers who have come to the United States seeking safety, protection and a better life. All shelter residents are in the process of seeking legal refuge in this country.
Located in the lower Rio Grand Valley of South Texas, La Posada has welcomed people from more than 70 different countries. Our goals extend beyond shelter to helping our clients adjust quickly to United States culture. Clients participate in life skills and English language lessons and receive personalized case management and transportation.
