The 2015 Annual Report shares an inspiring letter from Marcos Martinez, Casa Latina's executive director and tells the story of three Casa Latina members. Spoiler alert: your support helps them build better lives! The report also explains our programs, gives financial highlights, and shares key successes from the past year. A few of those big successes include:
- 9,092 jobs dispatched with an average hourly wage of $17.50
- 300 attendees of English classes with 24% attending more than 24 hours of class
- $21,848 in overdue wages collected by our Worker Defense Committee
Thank you—allies, donors, volunteers, employers, members, and friends of Casa Latina—for making these achievements possible!
"Everyone thinks that in the U.S. there are many opportunities, that if you work hard, you'll go far. But I've always said that if there isn't anyone to give you an opportunity, you can't work hard. That's what Casa Latina is for me, the opportunity to work hard."
