In 1954, called to meet the need of newly arrived immigrants, a group of multi-denominational Latino/a pastors rented a storefront at 1671 West Ogden Avenue, in the heart of a predominantly Latino/a neighborhood. They called this center Casa Central Evangelica and began providing counseling and aid to those in need. As their scope and services expanded, the agency became known simply as Casa Central.

Children who received their first winter coats and doctor check-ups from Casa Central in the 1950s and 1960s have now grown into successful adults with their own children in Casa Central's after-school programs and their parents in its senior programs. The agency has touched the lives of multiple generations of families in Chicagos Latino/a population and continues to transform lives and strengthen communities.

Your support has a direct and immediate impact on Casa Central's mission of transforming thousands of lives and strengthening communities with a special focus on Latinos. Our network of social services propels a diverse population of all ages toward self-sufficiency and a higher quality of life.
