Casa Esperanza assists homeless women transition out of homeless shelters toward a more independent lifestyle. This project targets goal-oriented women who actively seek to improve their situations through education and/or job training.
This shared housing project serves as a bridge between shelter living and permanent housing while residents obtain the training necessary to help her become independent and maintain her own household. Residents function under the supervision of a skilled executive director and social worker as well as assistants, volunteers and a board of directors who remain invested in the success of the women of Casa Esperanza.
Casa Esperanza does more than provide housing. We provide holistic programming to promote growth, while helping women continue their journey of personal development. With skills-based training and support, we help our residents move toward self-sufficiency and independent living. At Casa Esperanza, we strive to:
- Offer safe, affordable housing for four to six families for a two year period
- Assist residents to locate and secure daycare for their children
- Identify impactful training and educational programs
- Engage women in their own process of growth through the program
- Provide opportunities to develop supportive relationships with one another as well as with personal mentors who will encourage and accompany women in their journeys.
