We are really excited about the upcoming events.
Easter and Mother’s day will be very fun and meaningful for our families.

Our December holidays were very enjoyable!

Like every year, we had a big Christmas party for the families (Dec. 16th).It was such a delight to see the mothers and children have a great time playing games, eating tamales and pozole, winning piñatas on a big raffle, being together and sharing the love and warmth of Christmas. A very special part of our party was the posada. Maria and Jose were played by a boy and a girl, they were really excited and did a great job interpreting their Christmas journey while the mothers, children and staff sang the traditional songs.

Another great party was the Valentine’s Day Party on the 17th of February.

The kids had various activities to participate in like bingo, painting, hand crafting, cookie decorating, make-your-own banana split, and at the end we ate a delicious pizza! The kids were very excited to make beautiful cards and yarn heart crafts for their mothers and siblings. At the end, everyone took home a pizza, a delicious chocolate treat and a big smile! A very special thank you to our volunteers. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and your support!

On February 11, staff of Casa de Misericordia was asked to speak at UISD’s “United Council of Parents” Meeting where parents and administrators talk about several different topics.

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, and Children’s Staff of Casa de Misericordia served as a speaker in order to raise awareness about Domestic Violence. We spoke about the effects abuse takes on children as well as adults. “Love Shouldn’t Hurt” was the title of the presentation where we touched on recent local and nationwide statistics, safety planning and possible ways to help a victim. Although, not an easy topic to talk about, parents were engaged in asking questions and wanting to know more about services Casa has to offer victims of Domestic Violence.

 After this very successful event, we have been asked to participate byvarious other organizations and schools to present to students regarding Dating Violence.
