La Casa de Maria y Marta
An Intentional, Healing Community
San Antonio Mennonite Church operates a hospitality house named La Casa de Maria y Marta for asylum seekers recently released from detention. La Casa provides a place for immigrant families to rest, recover, and receive the support of a loving community while they discern their next steps.
Families can stay with us for several months. During that time, we provide them with physical necessities (food, clothing, shelter, and medical care), as well as opportunities for mental and emotional healing and connections to outside services. La Casa is also an intentional community for our entire congregation; members volunteer in various ways throughout a typical week.
Right now we have an ongoing need to provide transportation: take children to and from school and extra curricular activities. Contact our Program Director Michelle if you can help (send email to email@example.com).
Another need is tutoring the women in English. They have a strong desire to practice the communication skills they are learning.
