Founded in 1981, the Center for Adolescents of San Miguel de Allende “CASA” is a non-profit organization committed to assisting the most vulnerable populations through interventions that promote gender equality, human rights and access to accurate information.
CASA’s programs operate under a community-based education model that teaches others to teach. The model has enabled generations of CASA’s staff to transform their own lives and the lives many others in some of the most remote communities of Mexico.
Our community center and main offices are located in a working class neighborhood in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. The team travels regularly throughout the state as well as other parts of the country, and offers its services in schools, homes and public spaces.
In addition, our professional midwifery advocacy efforts have enabled us to change public policy and positively impact the country’s maternal and newborn health system and as a result CASA’s midwifery programs are being replicated in other states in Mexico.
