The mission of La Casa Guadalupana is to revitalize the Hispanic community of southwest Detroit through education. As adults and children discover their ability to learn together and develop their own potential, they realize their inherent dignity and discover their voice in the community. A vision of unlimited potential becomes clearer.
Classes are offered for adults in basic education (ABE), high school graduation equivalency (GED) and English (ESL). Additional educational programs in financial literacy, parenting, health care, immigration issues and more are offered for adults.
After school tutoring is available for children in reading, math and help with school assignments. Workshops for moms and young children help them discover the FUN of reading together. Monthly enrichment experiences are offered for families. A two week summer program for children helps them prepare for the upcoming school year and participate in daily art, music, science, creative writing, sports and more.
