Happy New Year! All of us at Casa de Esperanza wish you a happy and healthy 2022. We are grateful to each of your for the many ways you supported our children and families in 2021. You helped keep families together and in their homes, and ensured that Casa de Esperanza was able to continue our mission to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect. Over the next few months, we look forward to continuing to share the impact YOU made possible in 2021. Thank you!

There is much to look forward to this year, and one of them is a year-long celebration of Casa de Esperanza’s 40th year of providing HOPE and a HOME for children in crisis! Just like the children who come through our door, we LOVE birthdays! Casa de Esperanza has a long history of celebrating our birthdays in style and we are going all out for our 40th. From our Building Hope for Children Gala on May 1st, to our Chili Cook-Off and 40th Birthday Bash & Reunion Weekend October 28th -30st, we hope you join us as we celebrate throughout the year! We have already kicked things off with our 40 Stories for 40 Years series and Birthday Brigade, both of which are featured below.

Forty years is a milestone accomplishment that would never have possible without the vision, passion and hard work of our co-founders Kathy Foster and Bill Jones and countless volunteers, generous donors, and a supportive community. From the very first $500 donation, it has been the greater Houston community and beyond that has pulled together to care for Houston's children.

Our accomplishments over the past 40 years are also YOUR accomplishments. This solid beginning is the foundation on which we now stand. Our dedication to the mission of Casa de Esperanza has never been stronger. We can't wait to see what we can do together for the next 40 years.

Sincerely,
