Youth, Family & Health Services

La Casa de Don Pedro offers a multitude of social services available for the entire family. By supporting families, our goal is to engage, empower, and inspire people so that they are empowered access all that is available to them and be able to move forward with their own personal goals. Our staff of dedicated family support workers, counselors, and enrichment instructors engage with our families, often serving as their first port of entry into La Casa. They assess their needs and share the resources La Casa can provide and connect them to other opportunities as well.

Family Engagement and Counseling

La Casa de Don Pedro provides individual, family and group counseling. Families and youth can walk in or be referred to La Casa to participate in a variety of counseling activities and support groups. Our team is professionally trained in a variety of counseling skills and conduct intake assessments that begin with the presenting problem. Often the initial issues are only the surface of more complex problems that require more in-depth counseling. When individual challenges require outside expertise, we refer our clients to partner agencies.
