Rio Grande Valley, South Texas | Founded in 1989
La Posada Providencia answers the Gospel call to “welcome the stranger.” Founded by Sister Carolyn (now Hilary) Hooks, 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. 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.
