Las Comadritas


Three days a week on our South Tucson campus - House of Neighborly Service, the smells that come out of our kitchen would make your mouth water. And the sounds would make you smile.

Las Comadritas is our senior lunch & socialization program. Most of the women (and a few men!) feel most comfortable speaking Spanish. They live within a few blocks of our campus and most of them have lived there forever. They come together to eat a healthy, home cooked meal. They play a little bingo. Sometimes there is a special program where they can find out about benefits programs, changing regulations, health issues; they get help filling out paperwork and taking care of business. But mostly they just talk and laugh and enjoy each other's company - and feel a little bit less alone.
