Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education’s mission is to empower youth and their families by creating a culture of learning through high quality social, cultural, and education opportunities.
To address poverty and ensure systemic, durable change in disadvantaged neighborhoods by:
- Building community
- Investing in youth
To provide high quality arts and culture programming by:
- Catalyzing a sense of place and purpose for youth and the broader community
- Making learning interesting and meaningful
- Helping the community express its aspirations and coalesce a compelling vision for its future
We envision being a vital contributor to the South Bronx renaissance, fostering culturally and artistically vibrant neighborhoods which effectively prepare the next generation for success.
