Casa Otoñal Inc. is very excited to offer the following programs to our Greater New Haven Community in general and specifically to our Latino intergenerational Community.
Our After-School and Summer Camp Program serves children ages 6-12 who live in the community and who are primarily low income minority youth. The program offers homework assistance and fun enrichment activities. The objective of the program is to provide children with a safe and fun-filled alternative to the streets through activities with positive adult staff and volunteer role models.
Casa Otoñal, Inc.’s Senior Center Program is designed to enhance and improve minority (primarily Latino) elders' independence and quality of life. This program provides an interactive and caring environment that respects the culture and heritage of the community it serves. This is accomplished through a variety of activities that promote social interaction. Our components include community outreach services, a nutrition program, recreational activities, educational and informational programs, and language translation services. The goal is to increase awareness of community services designed for seniors. Our senior programs are sponsored through the Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut.
In collaboration with the City of New Haven’s Department of Education Early Childhood Education, and the National CDA Council, Casa Otoñal Inc. has operated a Child Development Associate (CDA) training program since 1998. The CDA is a nationally recognized credential for childcare workers who are employed in the public schools, early childhood programs, daycare centers, and Head Start programs or those who may be self-employed as family child homecare providers. The program also provides the opportunity for educational career advisement and support.
Casa Otoñal Inc.’s Community Center Rental offers a variety of meeting spaces for special events and business functions. Our facilities include a large open spacious room with a kitchen. Please come and host your next birthday/graduation party, family reunion, corporate conference/retreat, or any other small or large gathering with us!
