It was a great privilege to share La Casa Hogar’s story in the current issue of Yakima Magazine. The large house on sixth street is home to an ESL (English as a Second Language) school for women who’ve immigrated from Mexico. The school also offers computer literacy classes, a driving school, parenting education, citizenship classes and a preschool for children ages 2-5 (while their mother is in class).
La Casa Hogar gives these women opportunities – it helps them to achieve their dreams. But it’s only made possible with the support of grants and donations.
This Sunday, May 19th, La Casa Hogar is hosting their annual Connecting Communities Fiesta on the lovely grounds of the Cascade Gardens. There will be a silent art auction with the works of both local and international artists, as well as beer and wine from the Yakima Valley. You’ll have the opportunity to sip your beverage and stroll through the grounds while enjoying the Latin ballads and soft rock of Avion, which will be followed by a delicious Mexican dinner.
