Our building will be closed to the public beginning Monday, March 16 in order to keep participants, staff and visitors healthy and safe. During this time, Mi Casa and our partners will continue to provide support to our participants, via phone and online as best we can. We know our community is counting on us to support their professional, employment, and business needs, especially at this difficult time. Please know we are here for you.

 

We know there can be a lot of uncertainty and stress during these times, so have we been compiling a list of community resources. Please refer to these resources and don’t hesitate to reach out to anyone on our staff if you have questions. If there is a resource you need that is not covered on this list, please contact us and we will do our best to find information for you. This information is consistently changing, and we will update it as frequently as possible.
