Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In keeping with its original mission, La Casa continues to focus on offering opportunities for Latino youth to help them succeed in todays society, while fostering cultural pride. Since our founding, La Casa has modified its programming to address changing community needs. As a result, today La Casa not only provides programming for youth; it also offers services for adults, immigrants, seasonal workers and advocacy for local families. Many local Latinos and community leaders have been the beneficiaries of La Casa’s services or have helped to implement and guide programs. Through their support, and others in the community La Casa continues to respond to the changing needs of our community.
