We welcome Jennifer Long as our Fifth Sunday speaker. Jennifer is the Executive Director of Casa Marianella, the only shelter in Austin dedicated solely to immigrants. Current services include offering shelter, legal and medical resources, food, clothing, and English classes. Their vision is that all immigrants arriving in Austin will have safe housing and access to the services they need to be successful.
First UMC of Austin was one of the founding congregations of Casa Marianella back in 1986. Jennifer Long, Director since 1998, will update us on their work, how they are being challenged by current immigration policies, and offer ways we can support their work.
All are invited to attend this presentation sponsored by the Mercy and Justice Team.
