Casa Central Sponsers Run in Humboldt Park For Latino Human Services
Casa Central in Humboldt Park co-hosted the Wrigley Early Start Run with Voices for Illinois Children and Prevent Child Abuse America to raise money for La Posada, an interim housing program for homeless families, and other services that help the predominately Puerto Rican Chicago neighborhood.
“La Posada hosts around 70 families a year. The program continues to work with and keep tabs on the families that come through for another 18 months afterwards, to make sure they find a stable set-up,” wrote the Huffington Post.
They collected pledges for 5k and 10k runs and also a one-mile walk at the Grant Park event, and 100% of the proceeds are going to Casa Central.
