La Posada Providencia is an emergency shelter for immigrants, asylum seekers and asylees recently processed by U.S. immigration authorities. Income from the event will assist the clients served by La Posada in the coming year – as many as 300. La Posada provides clients with safe, clean shelter, food, local transportation, and supportive services, including English as Second Language (ESL) lessons, to help them take the necessary steps to achieving self-sufficiency and responsible integration into U.S. culture. Since 1989, the shelter has helped more than 8,500 people from 77 countries around the world. These people have suffered displacement from their native lands due to war, famine, natural disaster, poverty, or oppressive governments. 

Sponsored by the Sisters of Divine Providence, La Posada Providencia is a shelter for people in crisis from around the world. Clients have emigrated from some of the poorest countries in Central and South America, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe; they are referred to the shelter by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, attorneys and churches. They are in the legal process of applying for asylum or some other form of legal residency in this country.
