What To Expect

In the next few weeks, this blog will feature news about our upcoming events and programs. We will have a team of writers that interview, report and document our upcoming and past events. We hope to expand our blog to have both English and Spanish translations.

With the building of Casita Maria’s blog, we invite our readers to leave us comments about community events that Casita Maria and the Bronx community should know about.

Our blog will remain as fast paced and lively as the space Casita Maria occupies. With weekly updates, the blog will showcase our free community events such as dance recitals and poetry readings.

If you are interested in volunteering for Casita Maria and would like to become a blogger, please email

We are especially eager to find Spanish writers to blog for us!
