What Is the Hope in Learning Program? Thanks to a very generous grant from the Walmart Foundation, Esperanza Shelter now also offers the Hope in Learning program. Hope in Learning is a free tutoring service for our clients who are also survivors of domestic abuse. Our program helps prepare survivors to get a GED, learn English or study for the U.S. citizenship test. Hope in Learning provides all books and supplies and babysitting and transportation costs if necessary. The program even pays for testing fees. All tutoring occurs right in the Esperanza Support Center.
