Community Outreach Programs


Animal Outreach

To date we've rescued and found homes for at least a dozen abandoned and otherwise un cared for dogs, regularly fed many abandoned dogs and cats, paid for spaying and neutering and veterinarian services to treat wounds. Knowing these animals are sparks of God—love personified, this has become an unplanned function of the Casa.


Kids Outreach

For the past four years the Casa has provided individual Christmas presents to all the children in our two local head start programs. New books for each child have also been given as well as many new winter coats for the local children in need.

We feel blest to make our presence known in this way in this low income area.

Retreat Center

Economic Development

Costilla County is one of the poorest counties in Colorado. It is the Casa desire, with the help of Mother Mary's Garden and our healing retreats to help bring much needed tourist dollars to this depressed area.

The Arts

Local Culture & The Arts

The rich cultural heritage of the San Luis Valley produces many emerging artists. The Casa is proud to support the arts when possible to help continue this great local tradition.
