Monetary Donation

We are always so very grateful for monetary donations. These gifts help Esperanza pay the bills. Like everyone else, we must keep the lights on, run the water, keep the shelter warm. We sometimes provide emergency funds for survivors who, for example, need bus passes to look for work, must pay a fee when everything they own is in storage or need help getting the utilities turned on in a new apartment.
