We build leaders who transform our local community and pave the road for generations to come.

At Nuestra Casa, we stand by our community’s side to help them navigate institutions, build people power, and use their voice to shape a new, more equitable community. Our programs in East Palo Alto and its surrounding communities build leaders who transform our local community and are actively engaged in our local economy, school district, and civic life. Together, we will build a community that leaves no one behind. 

Our Mission

We exist to uplift Latino families in East Palo Alto and the mid-peninsula through community education, leadership development, and advocacy.

Our Vision

Nuestra Casa envisions a vibrant mid-peninsula community united around shared values, where every resident thrives—no matter where he or she lives. Through civic engagement activities and collaborative community action, our families in East Palo Alto, Belle Haven, and North Fair Oaks are paving the road for other generations to follow.
