La Posada Providencia is an emergency shelter for immigrants, asylum seekers and asylees recently processed by U.S. immigration authorities. Benefits from the event will assist the clients served by La Posada in the coming year — 500 or more, which represents more than a two-fold increase from the previous years.

La Posada provides clients with safe, clean shelter, food, local transportation and supportive services, including 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 8,000 people from more than 70 countries. “These people have suffered displacement from their native lands due to war, famine, natural disaster, poverty, or oppressive governments,” La Posada said in a statement.
