What happens at Casa San Juan?
Casa San Juan Center, a ministry of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, has a mission that is vital for marginalized populations. The Center serves families living in poverty, homeless families, and immigrant families.
Hundreds of families each month request help with immediate needs, such as help with food, clothing, medical, or shelter.
Families also receive help with advocacy, education, workforce resources, and immigration related assistance.
Immigration reform has become a primary local, state and national focus. Health, wellness, advocacy, and education are also a central focus.
The Casa San Juan Center was established in 2002 through the collaborative efforts of the Diocese of Tucson, Bishop Gerald Kicanas, Msgr. Raul Trevizo, Pima County Interfaith Council, and lay members St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. Numerous other community members and organizations embraced the efforts to launch the Center.
The Center is located in one of the poorest areas of Tucson, in the south side of the city where there is a large concentration of homeless adults and poor families, many of whom are immigrants.
The specific goal of the Center is to provide immediate help and work toward justice to advance the quality of life for all, including immigrant children and adults.
