Additional Info:"The Casa de los Amigos is a Quaker Center for Peace and International Understanding in Mexico City. Established as a non-profit organization in 1956 by the Quaker community in Mexico, the Casa’s work continues to be rooted in Quaker values. The Casa de los Amigos is many things: a peace organization, a community center, the meetinghouse for Mexico City Friends, a social justice-oriented guest house, and a home. The practice of sincere hospitality, rooted in recognizing the human dignity of each person, is at the core of the Casa de los Amigos. Full-time volunteers make a six month to year long commitment and live in the house for free, receive a monthly food stipend, get free breakfasts, and use the services of the Casa. Full-time volunteers help run the Hospitality Program, including the guest house, maintaining community spaces, and planning and running events, work with the Peace Programs, participate in Casa life, and share in the many other tasks and projects needed to
 keep our house and community healthy, safe and vibrant."
