"Volunteering at Casa Central’s Adult Wellness Center was a really fun experience. I got to see everybody extremely happy while enjoying each other’s presence as we played dominos and talked with them about their experiences growing up.


This was an amazing experience for me. I got to spend time with people in a new way and make new connections.


Get Involved


I felt very welcomed by the staff and the members of the Casa Central community. When I went to meet with the children, all that joy in the room made it so much easier to connect with them.



"My experience at Casa Central was just magical. The best part of hanging out with all the beautiful people was being able to connect with them and hear their stories."
