La Casa de Amistad

While we were in South Bend, we visited an organization named “La Casa de Amistad.”  La Casa de Amistad is an organization that operates as a youth and community center in the West side of South Bend. This organization addresses the needs of the area Latinos through various services and programs. Rebecca Ruvalcaba, the Executive Director of the organization, talked to the Latino SST group about the Latinos in the West side neighborhood of South Bend and how “La Casa de Amistad” provides support to youth and families there and the sorrounding area.
