Lacasa cut the ribbon on a new office located in downtown Elkhart Thursday. Lacasa is a local community outreach organization and is celebrating 50 years in Elkhart County. 

Lacasa provides different services to residents of Elkhart County, like financial advice, matched savings programs, immigration services, and more.

 

The organization has a few offices around, but this will be the first one in the City of Elkhart to offer all of their one-on-one programs. 

 

Chris Kingsley is the President and CEO of Lacasa. He said this office location will make the organization’s services available to more people. 

 

“People had to travel to Goshen to access that. People who are busy, they’re working, they have dependents, that is not easy to do. So to make our services more accessible, that was really the vision behind moving in here.” 

 

The new office is at 516 S Main Street and will be open to the public in mid-March.
