This charity provides the Hispanic Community in South Bend with many resources. They are very personable and very kind. They have services for the entire family from a pre-k program to food pantry services to assist the needy. This is a wonderful organization.

I served as both an intern and a volunteer with La Casa de Amistad. La Casa is an incredible organization that reflects the best of sustainable community collaboration. Led by members of South Bend's community on the west side, they do an exemplary job of responding to the needs of their community and supporting sustainable economic progress and social well-being in the area.

La Casa de Amistad is a wonderful nonprofit organization that provides the surrounding community with services that the low-income residents would otherwise not be able to afford. I personally have volunteered with the organization as an English language instructor for adult learners for the past year and have seen the tremendous impact that La Casa has on the community. By helping adults in my community gain control of the English language, I am contributing to their future success and a brighter future for my community. Some students come to class unable to read or write even in their own language and are given the gift of literacy from volunteers such as myself. La Casa provides the classroom space and materials in order that volunteers such as myself can give our gift of knowledge, skills, and friendship to fellow community members. La Casa de Amistad is at the top of my list for nonprofits that have impacted my community.

La Casa de Amistad in South Bend, Indiana, is a service and educational agency for the Hispanic community. It offers educational and support programs that include after school enrichment and activities, computer programs, GED programs, citizenship programs, and many more. One of the programs begun by La Casa is called Yo Puedo Leer (I can read) and has given Spanish speaking children a unique hands on approach in beginning reading. The beauty of the organization is that the ones that benefit from the program continue to enrich the community and encourage others. Our current director, Rebecca Rubalcaba, is a shining example of what La Casa de Amistad is all about.
