In this Season of Thanksgiving, we want to share our heartfelt gratitude for each of you. All year, we've focused on the value of relationships in everything we do at Casa de Esperanza - relationships with the families and children that turn to us for help and hope, relationships with our volunteers and donors, and relationships with our community. We cannot think of a more opportune time to reflect on the importance of relationships than at Thanksgiving, as we reflect on a wonderful year and prepare for a new one to come. YOU have helped changed the lives of so many children and families through your generous gifts of time, talent, treasure... and relationships. Thank you!

Thanksgiving marks the official start of the holiday season, which is a special time at Casa de Esperanza. For many of our children, this will be the first time they will spend the holidays in a safe home with all of their needs met. Our birth parents are provided with a special luncheon. It is a time when many people come to visit our neighborhood.

The holidays also offer the perfect opportunity for donors to increase their giving through our Triple the Hope campaign. Thanks to a generous, anonymous donor, every gift given to this campaign will be matched 2:1!

Throughout November and December, donors will share their reasons for giving their gifts to Casa de Esperanza. Join them in helping to meet our goal of $150,000. Please give a gift before year-end.

Thank you for partnering with us to serve Casa's children and their families. If you have not visited us, or are looking for ways to get more involved, please contact us!  

Sincerely,


Shelley M. Starr 
Executive Director
