Q: Does Casa serve only Hispanics?
A: No, Casa serves anyone who is uninsured. Because of the particular issues (such as cultural competency, language, and status) faced by this community, Casa focuses on Hispanics. But we have a broader mission for the foreign born and, beyond that, to underserved communities who find themselves without access to health insurance.
Q: Does Casa serve children?
A: No, but we collaborate with on-site partners for dental and eye care, as well as access to nutrition through a WIC program. In addition, People’s Health Centers makes appointments available to us at their Delmar clinic.
Q: Does Casa receive government funding?
A: No, Casa does not receive any federal, state, or local government funds. We rely on the generosity of regional foundations, corporations and private donors for our sustainability.
