La Casa

La Casa is a transitional housing program for migrant farm workers in Wayne County. Located in Sodus, La Casa can house up to 12 persons at one time, offering lodging to farm workers and their families. We serve farm workers in need of short-term housing when grower-provided housing is unavailable or when health issues prevent a laborer from returning to work. The typical stay at La Casa can last from 60 to 90 days.

La Casa helps its residents find more permanent housing and makes referrals to health, education, food, and social services. La Casa also advocates on behalf of the migrant farm worker community, seeking to obtain fair treatment and promote legislation that will provide migrant farm workers with a legal status that best serves them, the people that employ them and the surrounding community.

La Casa benefits from the active support of numerous volunteers, who paint, landscape, make repairs and provide other services of value to La Casa residents.

We are grateful to receive funding for La Casa from Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Rochester, Fidelis Care, and the generous and caring donations of local individuals, employers, parishes, and community groups.
