What We Do
Everybody Is Welcome
People immigrate for a variety of reasons including poverty, natural disasters and to escape persecution, etc. According to World Relief, “Church leaders are uniquely positioned in immigrant communities to develop relationships and to explore how to best serve their communities. Immigration laws are extremely difficult to understand and are constantly changing. Many immigrants do not understand how the immigration system works due to a lack of information and education and have difficulty accessing costly services. La Posada is founded to respond to these needs.

Represent and advise clients in immigration matters such as adjustment of status, removal proceedings, asylum appeals, and naturalization interviews before USCIS.
Our vision is to be a well-known and trusted immigration center that guides and educates through effectively and efficiently providing legal resources to the immigrant community at an affordable cost to its clients.
La Posada provides immigration resources through written materials, legal counsel, and referrals in a faith-based context that is experienced as welcoming and safe and focused on serving our vulnerable neighbors.
La Posada is rooted in Anabaptist-Mennonites beliefs. We obey the word of God in Jesus Christ by welcoming strangers and providing hospitality as found in Matthew 25:35.
We want to walk with the immigrant community and help them with their immigration needs and obligations.
Our name was inspired by the story of Mary and Joseph from Luke 2:7. Naun L. Cerrato, the pastor of Piedra Viva Mennonite Church, was guided by the Lord to create a place of sanctuary, one that would welcome and support the immigrant community with legal aid.
