After been a volunteer, I formally started working at La Casa Hogar in 2003. All these years I have been working in different areas such as La Escuelita, coordinating events, Computer, and Driving Instructor, I worked in 107 House in emergency Services when La casa provide that service. I had been working in the citizenship program for the last eight years as an instructor and I got certified for the Department of Justice to fill out the Naturalization application. “What I enjoyed most on my work at La Casa is helping people, people that need help and don’t have nowhere else to go”
