“We really loved everything about our stay at Casa Alma…My partner loves gardening and I love canning and we really enjoyed engaging in the massive garden. I remember when the tomatoes were falling off the plants they were so ripe and so plentiful, my 4 year old and I went out with her tricycle and filled up the basket and seat with as many tomatoes as we could and went and made salsa. My kids still reference that salsa. We also loved the goats.” -Sara
Please consider all who experience housing instability and support structural change and justice efforts.
Connect to the Charlottesville Low-Income Housing Coalition, the Jefferson School African-American Heritage Center, Sin Barreras, and Showing Up for Racial Justice.
Due to the local affordable housing crisis, there are many families, couples, and individuals in our area who experience housing instability. We invite the broader community to help meet this need by joining our emerging hospitality network.
The first component of this network is called Christ Rooms. This term was first used in the 4th century by St. John Chrysostom when he said, “Every family should have a room where Christ is welcome in the person of the hungry and thirsty stranger.” This is the practice of Christian hospitality.
