Casa Chirilagua Community 2013

As we form Casa Chirilagua’s Strategic Direction Plan, our entire community is part of the process. 
We’ve begun telling our story in the neighborhood and everywhere we’re invited. Next, on March 15th, we’re training our community – neighbors, volunteers, supporters, church partners, board members, staff, and friends – on what we do and why we do it.

Join us for this dynamic and interactive, workshop facilitated by Dawnielle Miller and Pablo Otaola, both Christian Community Development Association trained workshop facilitators. At this bilingual workshop you’ll learn:
– The history of Casa Chirilagua
– The 8 Key Components of Christian Community Development
– How you can be involved in Casa Chirilagua’s future
