February, often called "the month of love," is nearly over, but we did not want to miss the opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for all of you who, in your own unique and significant ways, show so much love for Casa de Esperanza and the children and families who turn to us for safety and hope.

In the immediate aftermath of Winter Storm Uri, and still in the throws of the COVID-19 pandemic, our volunteers, donors, partners and friends continue to show up, providing the resources necessary to forge ahead in our efforts to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect.

Our primary goal is safety, and we have a responsibility to ensure that the children and staff remain safe in the event of natural disasters or a major power outage. While we were very fortunate that our Residential Neighborhood's power never turned off, we were rest assured that we would continue to have electrical service as we have natural-gas generators for the homes.

The outpouring of generosity in response to our call for pantry items has been nothing short of amazing, and we cannot thank you enough. And our Hearts of Hope Giving Society members partner with us through a monthly gift that helps ensure we have the resources needed to respond to the many needs of our families.

On behalf of all of us at Casa de Esperanza, thank you for generous hearts. We are truly grateful for your support.
