Pokagon Fund Grant

We received a $6,500 grant from the pokagon fund logoPokagon Fund to support our summer programs. The Pokagon Fund is primarily an organization that services the New Buffalo Region, but opened funding to South Bend, and has graciously chosen to fund La Casa.

We are extremely grateful for the grant, as we have many activities planned for our summer programs; Crece Conmigo and Adelante. We still have a few openings for both of our programs as well.

Our programs start on MONDAY, June 15th, so last chance for signups will be this THURSDAY, June 11th. To signup call Humberto Delgado at 574-233-2120
