This is the front view of Casa Marianella where I currently volunteer once a week. Both, the volunteers I interact with and the residents (mostly men) I get involved with are great! It is a great experience where you get to help people while learning from them. Besides volunteering, Casa Marianella also welcomes donations such as food and clothes. Linked to Casa Marianella there is Posada Esperanza, which also in Austin but shelters women and children. Hope you can stop by and say hi sometime soon!
