One only needs to look around the Casa de Esperanza office to know that the holiday season is here. We are blessed to have the community's support to ensure that our children experience a holiday filled with joy and happy memories. For many of our children, this will be the first year they will experience a Christmas tree in the living room and presents under the tree. We are truly grateful for your outpouring of generosity.

It is not too late to maximize an end-of-year gift (including IRA distribution or gifts of appreciated stock ) through our Triple the Hope campaign. Thanks to a generous, anonymous donor, gifts given to this campaign will be matched 2:1! Be sure to post-mark your envelope by December 31 or, even easier, you can give online .

As we look toward the New Year, brush off those chili recipes as it is now time to register your Chili Cook-Off team before the cost increases January 1. We hope you'll be a part of the 10th annual event on February 22, 2020. Learn more, register your team, or sponsor here .

Thank you for helping us make 2019 a better year for children and families in need of our help. Your investment in the mission of Casa de Esperanza means that children are safe, families receive the help they need to flourish, and the cycle of child abuse and neglect is broken. All at Casa de Esperanza wish you a Happy New Year!
