Immigrants Get Fresh Start at Austin's Casa Marianella

"Hundreds of immigrants from all around the globe have found refuge at Casa Marianella.  Located in a quiet neighborhood in East Austin, the shelter consists of three houses at the end of a small street, close to the train tracks.  It’s a place where immigrants can go to feel safe, get situated and start building their new lives in a new country." - Lucia Benavides, Austin American-Statesman, Feb. 24, 2013.
