We are housed in the Education Building of Basic UMC. While not a ministry of this church, they do graciously provide us with several well-equipped rooms for our operations. On the second floor, we operate an after-school program
called Amigos Readers, adult ESL instruction and a supply closet.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Casa de Amistad. Without them, our goals cannot be realized. Even though a large number of our clients are Hispanic, you do not have to be fluent in or even familiar with Spanish to be involved.
However, if you are looking to improve your foreign language skills or acquaint yourself with another culture, Casa de Amistad is an excellent opportunity.

Different Programs of Casa de Amistad are:

  • Amigos Readers
  • Adult Instruction
  • Emergency Assistance
  • Special Occasions Projects

  • Other Fundraising Events

  • EnterSection

  • Saturday Supply Closet

  • Summer Enrichment Day Camp

  • Storage Unit

Thank you so much for highlighting the work of Casa de Amistad. We are grateful for the spirit of generosity that exists at Emmanuel Episcopal. As always, you attention to our Supply Closet ministry is invaluable and the children of the Amigos Readers Tutoring Program are thriving thanks to your support!
