Casa Marianella is the only immigrant specific homeless shelter in Austin. We provide housing and full supportive services for over 325 adults and children a year in shelters and supportive housing programs. Our residents come from over 30 countries; many come to use from immigration detention. The majority, including children are seeking asylum; most are escaping violence and oppression. Over 80% leave Casa for self-sufficiency.
