Hilary's words—and Lucia's below capture the essence of Casa Latina's many successes in the past year, and we're excited to say that there's a whole lot more good news in our latest Annual Report!
You'll find Lucia's whole story in the Annual Report, as well as information about how our programs work, striking photos of our community, and financial highlights. We also share 2014's many successes. They include:
- 8,866 jobs dispatched by our worker center with an average wage of $16.46 per hour
- 911 attendees in our workplace safety and skill trainings
- After lobbying from Casa Latina and other organizations, Seattle passed a new $15 minimum wage and established an Office of Labor Standards
Thank you—allies, donors, employers, members, and friends of Casa Latina—for playing an important part in these achievements!
"I don't have the words to describe my love and appreciation for Casa Latina, especially the economic support I've received. We're almost ready to get a house again. And we will succeed."
-Lucia Canaro, Casa Latina Member
