Shelter Renovation Project

Esperanza’s emergency shelter was gifted to the agency in the 1980s and is the heart and soul of the organization and services we provide. Over the last three years, our leadership team has made our shelter top priority with significant measures taken to upgrade security, recruit, hire and train new staff, provide ongoing professional development, increase facility maintenance and complete the installation of our children’s playground. The next phase of capital improvements to the shelter is a full repair of the building stucco, installation of double pane windows, landscaping, and updated ADA-compliant bathrooms.

The capital improvements will contribute to our overall mission of providing a safe, clean, and structurally sound shelter for our clients. As COVID restrictions allow our clients to re-enter our emergency shelter, these capital improvements will welcome them back and provide a safe, fresh start. In turn, these improvements will assist our agency in eliminating high utility costs and provide energy efficiency in our shelter.

Thank you for your generosity, with your support we met our match and renovations are well underway!
