Description

Founded in 1994, Casa Latina has been an essential resource for the Seattle Latino community for 30 years. Casa Latina is unique for providing both direct services – and engaging in community organizing work to address systemic change.    

Our Day Worker Center,  Education Program, and Leadership Programs are focused on providing training, knowledge, and support to help our community of members move toward greater self-sufficiency. Since 2014, over 54,000 jobs have been dispatched through Casa Latina's member-led worker center.  

Led by members of our community, Casa Latina organizes at the city, state, and national levels to create systemic change for immigrant workers.
