About Homelesness

Here at Casa we believe education is the key to lift yourself out of homelessness. 

Success of Casa Nueva Vida’s educational programing is measured by short-term criteria and long term criteria. Short-term success is measurable in the more immediate criteria. For the adult at our shelter, the criteria includes; placement into permanent housing, continuation of educational programs, improvement of english and computer skills (if needed), and a generally smooth and successful transition out of homelessness. For the children at out shelter, short term criteria includes; improvement of self esteem, improvement in behavior and the ability to interact with other children, eagerness to learn, and improvement in academic performance.
