This cultural center was founded in 1905 and has been serving the Mexican-American community ever since. With several youth oriented programs available, including performances, workshops and exhibitions, the focus is on preserving Mexican traditions such as Day of the Dead. Murals on the outside of the building include work by Ray Patlan, Salvador Vega, Aurelio Diaz and Marcos Raya. The center also features performance and outsider art.
Despite the location, Casa Aztlan is very resourceful. They have paired with many organizations to help immigrants and their needs. Currently and its most widely used service is the CEDA program, which helps families of limited means to pay their gas and electricity bills. Other services available are citizenship classes for immigrant families,GED classes, elementary and secondary education for adults, music, and afterschool programas are also available. I encourage anyone to take advantage of their facilities and programs.
