The Casa offers a Volunteer Program for anyone able to commit between 9-12 months. The volunteers work in the Reception area, cooking breakfast, and many other areas. Its a great opportunity to learn Spanish, be involved in social justice issues, and make new friends.
The Casa offers housing to refugees, migrant, and asylum-seekers. Casa volunteers work to educate the community about the roots and realities of migration. Since the daily wage is so low, there is alot of movement in the country to find employment. The Casa raises money for this program through the sale of home-made jams, etc. This money buys food for the migrants passing through on the trains.
