It is amazing for me to have been a part of Casserly House since it began…

My sister first came to Casserly House for English classes. My cousin now has a good job with benefits because he came here. My son received homework help from volunteers. Casserly House is about hope. It’s like family. It’s always been a place where “unifying love flares”  …the staff encourage us – propelling us to be more of who we can be.

Winter 2022, I participated in a neighborhood group who came together to talk about Casserly House. We reflected on all the love and encouragement we’ve found at Casserly House and imagined where the future will bring us. I’m so honored to now be a member of Casserly House’s Advisory Board. We want to continue that love, hope, and support as we respond to current neighborhood needs. It’s a chance to spread unifying love that flares to others. The neighborhood is changing. We need to change with it.
