Review for La Casa Norte, Chicago, IL, USA
For several years now I have brought a group of college students to La Casa Norte to learn about the organization, the important work they do and the people they serve, as well as to engage in service. Each year students have chosen to perform ongoing service work, whether helping out at one of La Casa Norte’s sites or conducting a drive for donated goods on campus. It is always great to return; Roberto, the volunteer coordinator, is a positive, motivating presence. The city is lucky to have an organization like La Casa Norte that is expanding services at a time when state budget issues have forced other organizations to make cuts in a time of increasing need. The commitment and creativity of the staff is impressive. The difference they make in the lives of their clients is inspiring.
