“Mi casa es su casa”…”Home is where the heart is”…IMG_0904 IMG_4240

“La casa de la comunidad” is the community house that we share with our neighbors. Twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings, we have children from the neighborhood come play, hang out and receive homework help from the YAV / Dwellers. In front of the house is also a community garden where both we and our neighbors plant fruits and vegetables. It is a tradition of our Hollywood site to have the Community Open House Days and to share the garden. This house truly is the community’s house. A good portion of our neighbors are latinos, so as we latinos say, “mi casa es su casa”. In this case it’d be, “esta casa es nuestra casa”, meaning this house is our house.
