La Casa Latina (Sioux City, Iowa)
La Casa Latina, Inc. was a non-profit organization in Sioux City, Iowa, which helped its clients obtain human services, healthcare, housing, and other basic needs. The main purpose of La Casa Latina was to provide assistance to recent Latino immigrants and limited or non-English speakers in the Siouxland area. Services were provided primarily by volunteers in the form of direct aid such as translation and interpretation services and educational programs, referral to outside services and agencies, and advocacy. La Casa Latina described itself as a "self-help and self-determined ethnic center" set up to create self-sufficiency and integration for the Latino community. The organization operated under the name La Casa Latina from 1989 until 2007, when it joined the Mary J. Treglia Community House in Sioux City.
