Welcome to Esperanza Shelter. All program services are provided at no cost to survivors and are confidential. (We never share any of your personal information with anyone.) Here at Esperanza, we will embrace you and your loved ones, and help you escape your abusive situation.

Believe that you are not alone. Abuse does not define you. Abuse is not your fault.  Violence does not have to follow you into your future. Esperanza’s doors are wide open and we are here to help. You’ve taken the first step necessary to leave a life of abuse behind—just by looking for information.

Who Are We?

Esperanza Shelter is a domestic abuse agency. We offer safe, confidential housing, counseling, food, clothing and supplies—for you and your children, if you have kids. We can help get you to our shelter if you don’t have transportation. Esperanza also helps abuse survivors work within the court system. And again: All program services are provided at no cost to survivors.

Esperanza Shelter primarily serves Santa Fe County and the eight Northern Pueblos. We occasionally shelter domestic abuse victims from other parts of New Mexico and even some from other parts of the U.S. when necessary.  Esperanza Shelter has been committed to its mission for 45 years.

When you call us, we’ll help you make a Safety Plan.  Call any time of the day or night.  We will shelter you and your children.  We’ll find a safe place for your pets.  We’ll get you counseling.  We’ll help you plan a future without abuse, without fear.

24-HOUR CRISIS HOTLINE:  505.473.5200 or 1.800.473.5220

Esperanza Shelter’s Mission is to shelter those threatened by domestic violence and to support healthy relationships.
