As a multi-purpose community based organization La Casa de Don Pedro seeks to address the myriad needs of its residents and community. To achieve this, in addition to providing programs programs directly within the agency, La Casa uses affiliate organizations to support specialized work and to embrace social entrepreneurial initiatives. La Casa’s social entrepreneurial ventures seek to capture the economic wealth generated from our work to maximize the economies of scale, generate unrestricted revenues to support core program activities and create employment opportunities.

La Casa has three active affiliates:

  • Don Pedro Development Corp provides real estate project management and serves as a holding company for our real estate development work.
  • LC HomeBuilder provides expertise in the construction business.
  • La Olla or the Spanish word “the Pot” is a food preparation kitchen that provides daily breakfast, lunch, and supper to our clients including early childhood education students, after school program participants, meals-on-wheels program for people living with HIV/AIDS, and other programs. We also offer small scale catering.  For more information please contact Martha Villegas at 973-482-8312.

These social entrepreneurial activities build on the internal needs and synergies of La Casa’s core work and are projected to provide goods and services to others in the broader community.
