Donatefostering self-sufficiency, empowerment
and neighborhood revitalization since 1972
La Casa de Don Pedro has been serving the residents and stakeholders of Newark’s North End since 1972. It was founded by new arrivals seeking a means to achieve self-sufficiency and empowerment in a rapidly changing city. Today La Casa is well known as the advocate for the North End neighborhoods and for residents throughout the City, County and State who seek to have viable communities and social justice for all. La Casa’s community organizing, advocacy and social service infrastructure is recognized as the largest and primary link to the Hispanic community in Newark and beyond.
La Casa’s programs are comprehensive and integrated because we recognize that the needs of individuals, their families and their children tend to be interconnected and benefit from a holistic approach. We urge and support our participants to use the full spectrum of services provided by our internal and external network. As our programming has grown La Casa has also targeted its efforts based on strategic and comprehensive plans directed to achieve specific goals and to have an impact on families and the community at large.
Change is the one constant in our community and La Casa continues to evolve in-step with our constituents and surroundings. To help us address our changing climate, we are currently undergoing a 5 year strategic planning process (2012-2017). Please stay tuned as we will be providing information to our community as the plan is completed. No matter the plan, as we consider the future, La Casa’s staff, management and Board strive to serve the community within a framework of commitment, professionalism, transparency and the highest level of service feasible. At La Casa, our history and our mission define who we are and what we do.
