La Casa de Esperanza, Inc. began in 1966 as History Builders, a small, high quality childcare center, whose goal was to create a smooth transition for children living in a totally Spanish-speaking environment, to the Public School District’s English speaking environment. In 2017, nearly 50 years later, La Casa continues to grow, with a passion for positive change.
Since 1966, La Casa has expanded and now offers four fundamental programs. Our Education Programs include a thriving Early Childhood Education, School Age Education Program, and Charter School for the children and youth in our community. Our Workforce Development & Financial Stability Program provides comprehensive employment assistance, financial literacy and financial stability services to low-income people seeking economic self-sufficiency. La Casa Village I and II offer affordable and private apartments to low-income seniors and disabled individuals. The Weatherization Program identifies energy waste and provides cost-effective, energy saving measures and education to low-income residential households.
La Casa de Esperanza is a community-based organization committed to providing opportunities for those within our community to achieve full social and economic participation in society, with an emphasis on the Hispanic population. La Casa helps more than 20,000 individuals and families annually through a variety of programs and services to create positive change in the community. La Casa continues to transform every individual and family it touches, fostering hope and providing opportunities for a prosperous, engaged and connected community.
