Thanksgiving is upon us, and at Casa de Esperanza we have much to be thankful for! While 2021 continues to be marked by the challenges of the pandemic, there are signs that we are slowly returning to normal.

This month saw the return of two important events: m Strategic Partners' Cars and Clays and the 11th Annual Chili Cook-Off hosted by Casa de Esperanza's Young Professionals. It felt wonderful to be back together in person to raise vital funds and awareness for Casa de Esperanza's mission. We are incredibly grateful to m Strategic Partners, the Chili Cook-Off Host Committee and the countless volunteers, attendees, and donors that made both events a success!

We are thankful to each of you. Your partnership with us, through the past year and beyond, has helped change the lives of children at risk of abuse and neglect and parents who need guidance and help to build stronger families. I hope you enjoy reading the story of Nyla, Nathan and their family below. Because of generous donors like you, this family found hope and help through some of their most challenging days. When you give to our annual Triple the Hope campaign, you help families like theirs find their own success stories. Thanks to a generous, anonymous donor, every gift given to this campaign will be matched 2:1! We appreciate your support!

Wishing you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season.
