Visits and Volunteers

To protect our clients, staff, and the greater community from possible COVID-19 exposure, La Posada accepts on-site visitors on a limited basis. With advance notice, we will conduct tours outside of our facility. Unfortunately, we cannot yet offer tours inside our shelter buildings. La Posada truly appreciates visitor and volunteer interest. We value our volunteers and could not accomplish what we do without the incredible help and perspective they bring. We appreciate your understanding; may we all stay safe and healthy as we gradually emerge from earlier pandemic restrictions.

To ensure the best visitor experience and to inquire about volunteer opportunities, we ask that you contact the volunteer coordinator at volunteer@lppshelter.org.   Also, please review this page for specific details about volunteering.

Thank You!

Become a Volunteer for La Posada Providencia

Volunteers are everyday people – teachers, church members, retirees, stay-at-home parents, doctors, and grandparents. Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart to make a difference. Becoming a volunteer with La Posada Providencia is a rewarding experience and, in many ways, impactful to refugee and asylum seekers in the United States. Volunteers are community members who share our commitment to the mission and are valued partners who become an extension of our staff- we trust your decision to apply is made with much discernment. Once becoming a volunteer with La Posada, you also become part of the La Posada family.
