Casa de Esperanza has been providing hope and healing for Houston's children and their families whose lives have been disrupted by abuse, neglect, homelessness, poverty, substance abuse, parental incarceration and/or HIV-infection since 1982.  

Casa de Esperanza does not believe money should ever be exchanged for children. Because of this, no fees are charged for any service and they do not receive government funding. Funds are raised through special events, grant proposals, appeal letters and individual donations. Community volunteers are a very important part, and are key to the success of Casa's programs. 

I first learned about Casa de Esperanza in 2010, and have been focused on spreading their mission across Houston ever since. For the last two years, I have been blessed to be a member of the Young Professionals group, and a weekly neighborhood volunteer. Every Wednesday, rain or shine, I get the pleasure of spending time with the Hands of Hope Interns and the children in their care. From playing on the playground, reading books, helping with dinner and holding babies, it has been the highlight of my week - every week!!!

There are many ways you can help support Casa de Esperanza in their mission to provide a safe place for children. There are a number of organizations that will donate to Casa on your behalf, just for using their services: Amazon, Randalls, Kroger, Jury Duty, GoodSearch, and more! To learn more about the many ways you can help support Casa, click here

Please join me in supporting Casa de Esperanza and Houston's children who need our help! For more information about Casa, or to learn how to join one of their many great programs, visit their website - casahope.org - or click here.

All donations are tax-deductible.
