THE BEST WAY TO CELEBRATE OUR 80TH ANNIVERSARY

Casita Maria is turning 80 this year and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our anniversary than by honoring the cultural achievements of our community. Casita Maria, City Lore and Dancing in the Streets are collaborating to commission and install a series of distinctive physical markers that identify key locations in the cultural history of the South Bronx. This collaboration is the most visible part of a larger, long-term project-the SOUTH BRONX CULTURE TRAIL-that captures key moments in the South Bronx's seminal cultural history. The project is supported by a $80,000, 2-year grant from THE NEW YORK COMMUNITY TRUST. 

Were you a Casita Maria Kid?

If Casita Maria has been part of your life, we'd love to hear from you. We are currently compiling a mailing list of Casita Kid Alumni for future newsletters and events.

Please send a message to edelgado@casitamaria.org  and we will be in touch with you very soon!
