Local community leader, Alexis Salamanca worked with HOPE worldwide and Lifeway Church to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. with their “Day on Hope” event at La Casa. Almost 150 volunteers donated their time to paint the outside of several buildings, clean up our landscaping and even fix electrical issues in our gym. We were fortunate to have a local artist, Amber Thompson Plummer, donate her time and skills to create a colorful mural that represents La Casa’s history and rich culture. Local organizations, businesses and individuals came together to donate the funds needed to provide the paint for this amazing piece of art that has transformed the outside of La Casa. A big THANK YOU to the artist, Amber Thompson Plummer and all the volunteers who made this happen! La Casa would also like to thank the organizations who contributed to the HOPE worldwide event: MR Electric,
