Youth Programs Director: A California native now on the East Coast, Marissa leads alongside our Local Leaders directing all of our Youth Programs. As a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala, Marissa’s time was focused on Maternal and Child health concerns. She holds a bachelors degree in International Affairs with a Public Health concentration from George Washington University.

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.
