Awesome Foundation Grant Received
The Awesome Foundation-Santa Fe Chapter has selected Esperanza Shelter as a grant recipient for a micro-grant of $1,000.

The grant is to help fund our Hope & Comfort Fund to purchase cell phone minutes and cell phones for clients in emergency shelter.

It is not uncommon for abusers to intentionally hide or destroy items to control their victims (i.e. social security card, driver’s license, cell phones, car keys, etc.). To maintain power and control in an abusive relationship it is typical for an abuser to deny a victim access to credit cards, banking information and other forms of financial support. Another tactic used by an abuser is installing tracking software on their victim’s laptop and/or cell phone to monitor where they are. 

Clients need new cell phones to stay safe. Having a cell phone provides clients ongoing access to their family, friends, resources, doctors, therapists and Esperanza staff. Providing survivors with a cell phone promotes independence, empowerment and healing. 

Thank you to the Awesome Foundation in Santa Fe for their generosity and support! For more information about our Hope & Comfort fund click here.
