Yakima Interfaith Coalition dba, La Casa Hogar
June 8, 2010

I was first a guest at Lunch on Us a few years ago. What I saw that day at La Casa Hogar brought tears of happiness. The women who were and are students in the English as a Second Language class were alive with commitment. The classroom was home to both Moms and infants, and the patient instructor is a gift. These women are thriving on learning English as well as making friends and learning parent skills in the preschool that their children attend while they are in class. Instead of feeling like helpless migrants, La Casa has provided them a safe place to learn, grow and become good citizens in our community. The classes have now expanded to include driving, computer skills, GED classes and soon there will be a citizenship class. I have former students grow into professionals on the staff of La Casa Hogar. I truly know of no better non-profit serving women than La Casa Hogar. Bette Taylor
