In July 2017, Mi Casa Resource Center moved its headquarters to the Westwood neighborhood in Southwest Denver. A lead gift of $1.5 million from the Salazar Family Foundation was key to the success of Mi Casa’s capital campaign. In recognition of the family’s contributions to Mi Casa and their outstanding impact on Denver’s philanthropic community, Mi Casa’s headquarters were named “Salazar Center for Family Prosperity.”

The Salazar Family Foundation, founded in 1999 by Rob and Lola Salazar, is focused on supporting organizations that improve the quality of education for Denver residents. Lola Salazar grew up in Southwest Denver and attended Lincoln High School, not far from the location of the new Salazar Center for Family Prosperity. She said: “This is my old neighborhood. This is where I first aspired to achieve my goals and dreams. I am excited to see the redevelopment of Westwood and the impact Mi Casa will have on families so they can aspire to achieve their goals as well.”

The Salazar Center for Family Prosperity utilizes training rooms with state-of-the-art technology, breakout spaces for individual consulting, and flexible work spaces for staff. The art and décor represent the Latino heritage of the organization. Mi Casa is proud to have interior murals designed and painted by Carlos Frésquez, a nationally-renowned Latino artist.
