We are called to affirm the vital role of the local church

Apr 2, 2014

We view Casa Chirilagua as an extension of the local church, being an access point for the local church to give tangible expression to it’s call to serve the poor, the oppressed, the immigrant, the widow, and the orphan. We affirm the central role of the local congregation in discipling new followers of Christ.

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.

Each member of our Casa community holds a unique gift, whether time, talent or treasure.
