our approach

Jan 29, 2014

Our approach to ministry reflects the approach of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA), a network of Christians committed to seeing people and communities holistically restored. We believe God wants to restore us not only to right relationship with Himself but also with our own true selves, our families and our communities. Right relationships touch our spirituality, emotions, physicality, economics, and society. We offer not only mercy, but mercy undergirded with justice.


To this end, we seek to emulate Jesus by going to the margins and drawing out hope in the places of brokenness in our community. In the words of the Prophet Jeremiah, “we work and pray for the well-being of our city [or neighborhood],” trusting that if the entire community does well and prospers, then we will prosper also.

We are a community of people “learning together to love our neighbors as ourselves” in a Latino neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.

As a faith-based Christian non-profit with a small staff and over 100 volunteers, we serve alongside more than 100 families and their children (1st-12th grades) each week through our community programs.

Our relational network of volunteers and donors reflects a diverse group of individuals from all over the Washington, D.C. metro area. As a non-profit, we rely on the community for assisting program directors on-site, being mentors, supplying the needs of our food pantry, and everything in between. Each member of our Casa community holds a unique gift, whether time, talent or treasure.
