Las Palmas

My name is Sue Frankel Streit and I am part of Little Flower, a small Catholic Worker homestead in Louisa, VA. For over 20 years we have offered hospitality to formerly homeless people, grown and distributed fresh food, and helped support local homeless and housing-insecure folks. We also work against war, racism and other forms of systemic action, engaging in and supporting nonviolent direct action when we can. We are not a non-profit, but last year we formed a non-profit called Las Palmas specifically to help with down payments for undocumented people trying to buy homes. So far, two families have purchased homes with the help of this fund.
