Currently, La Casita Center has a modest food pantry that is stocked entirely by donations, often from the same families it serves. We are in the processed of renovating our new building on Magnolia Street so that we may house a Dare-to-Care Pantry. This would allow La Casita Center greater access to a wider range of food including, importantly, fresh fruits and vegetables. This, in turn, would allow La Casita Center to reach and serve greater numbers of the Latin@ population, and would be the only Dare-to-Care pantry dedicated to meeting the needs of the Latin@ Community.
La Casita Center operates a clothes closet where donated clothes, household items and baby items are distributed through our walk-in hospitality program. What is special about this program is that often families return clothes that they have borrowed, once their children have grow out of them, so that the clothes may be offered to another family.
Supporting families in reaching their basic needs builds a strong foundation for further personal growth, empowerment and community engagement and exposes more community members to our programs. As part of our holistic approach to accompaniment and community building, La Casita Center provides support for individuals and families through our walk-in hospitality program, offering clothing, food and referrals to our programs and other basic services and resources.
