LaCasa works with individuals and community partners to create opportunity for
personal empowerment, family stability and neighborhood vitality.
LaCasa, Inc. is Elkhart County’s Community Housing Development organization. We believe that every family deserves the chance to build a better life through the acquisition of assets and housing that is safe, attractive and affordable. LaCasa has a full service HomeOwnership Center which offers classes in Financial and Homebuyer Education, matched savings accounts and individual counseling for debt reduction, goal setting, foreclosure prevention and reverse mortgage. Low income homeowners who need repair or weatherization work done on their homes can apply for LaCasa’s Help-A-House program. LaCasa’s Immigration program is staffed by accredited counselors. All classes and counseling sessions are available in both English and Spanish. In 1969 area church leaders saw the need for safe affordable housing for migrant workers. As the organization grew, LaCasa’s client base grew to include all people who live in Elkhart County. We are still connected to the many churches that support LaCasa and the hundreds of area residents that invest in their community through donations to LaCasa. LaCasa is a major investor in Elkhart County with several multi-family rental properties in both Elkhart and Goshen. These properties provide affordable housing to families and singles who are looking for a rental that is safe, attractive and affordable.
