Su Casa Columbus is a non-profit organization that strives to help and serve its Latino community, so that all Latino’s feel welcome and safe, with equal access to opportunities that encourage a sense of pride and belonging.



Su Casa Columbus  was founded in 1999 as a response to the increase of Latin American immigrants arriving to Columbus. The majority of these immigrants had limited English proficiency. Su Casa was established to provide a helping hand and remove barriers to make essential services in our community accessible for those families.

Su Casa Columbus is set to serve as a catalyst to facilitate the interaction of the Latino Community within Bartholomew County and help them to become more productive in a shorter period of time.



Su Casa is a cross-cultural bridge connecting Hispanic and non-Hispanic communities of Bartholomew County, working to:

  • Increase Latino self-sufficiency; economic independence and community building through advocacy, educational attainment and greater access to community resources.
  • Bring people together in ways that benefit both Latino and non-Latino residents.


We look forward to serving you!
