Casa del Pueblo, a ministry of Lehman UMC in Hatboro, received part of a grant won by an immigrant rights organization to help Latino families in dire need of aid due to lost income during the COVID-19 pandemic. The 11-year-old ministry serves families in and around Hatboro and also in Warrington, where it conducts worship and Sunday school at St. Paul UMC, its satellite location.
Casa del Pueblo was one of four Hispanic churches in Bucks County to receive funds from grants awarded to Immigrant Rights Action, a Doylestown-based nonprofit to help persons excluded from federal and state COVID-19 aid due to immigration status. The Rev. Lucky Cotto is pastor of Casa del Pueblo.
