Holiday Open House 2013!
What a great way to wrap up the year with the Casa de Amistad annual Holiday Open House! Our Open House is a great way to meet Casa de Amistad’s staff, board members, volunteers and participants. Come be a part of the party as we celebrate our accomplishments and look forward to our future endeavors. Our open house celebrates the cultural contributions made by Hispanics and it is a wonderful way to meet with members of the community we serve. Come enjoy traditional culinary cuisine prepared by the families we support through our programs. Don’t forget to bring the kids because there will be a piñata and other fun activities for all to enjoy!

We also like to take advantage of the holiday season to engage in the spirit of giving to those in need.

Local churches have generously supported this program by contributing baskets, but we always welcome the donations of individuals, families and/or groups .
