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.
