Casa San Jose might be a small organization, but we do so much. This event will help us continue to keep our programs alive.”Andrea Padilla Herrera, Communications Specialist, Casa San Jose
Casa works closely with people who need employment, and offers transportation, interpretation, and case management services.
This organization cares deeply about the future of Latinx youth. They have organized a program, Puentes Hacia El Futuro, that works with kids ages 6-14. The program functions year-round and provides a space for educational support, mentorship, and much more.
There is no shortage of opportunities and resources for Latinx immigrants looking for support. Casa offers many programs, from mental health services to youth summer camp. For more information about what they can do, visit https://casasanjose.org/
If you support immigrant justice and diverse cultures, please consider donating to this event,” said Herrera.
