EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

The Casa Libre/Freedom House offers its residents a range of cultural and creative art activities, including photography, music lessons, monthly "Film Night at Casa Libre" with presentations by the film-makers, and routine weekend outings to sporting events, museums, parks, and more! 

Multimedia Center

The goal of the planned Casa Libre Multimedia Center is to provide homeless and at risk children living in the Casa Libre house and homeless children residing at other local shelters opportunities to study and learn multimedia skills including music, film, and photography, and to find avenues for these children for artistic self-expression.


Until the site has been renovated, a preliminary multi-media program has been established and is implemented in the Casa Libre main house. The program currently has available for participant use ten new  computers, music, and recording equipment. 


Staff and volunteers will teach program participants skills in computer technology, musical instruments, photography, etc.


The objectives of the planned Casa Libre Multimedia Center are:


  • To provide homeless and at risk children and youth with opportunities for self-expression through the arts;
  • To provide homeless and at risk children and youth with incentives to continue their education in the arts and related subjects;
  • To provide tutoring/training in the areas of music, film and photography for homeless and at risk children in order to prepare them for possible internships or employment in these or related areas of work.
