Casa de Luz

casa de luz logo

The Casa Building Project is a huge blessing, made possible by dozens and dozens of people with a heart for transforming lives in the Naked City. Although we have some more fundraising to do, we are excited to be able to get started in making our building safer and more efficient for the work we do. The finished facility will have a purpose-built food pantry and kitchen area, relocated offices, more common area space for kids and community programs, and additional restrooms. Most of all, the plumbing and electrical will be safe and the building will be leak free!
