Casa de Esperanza was created in 1982 by a small group of courageous Latina activists to provide an emergency shelter and other supportive services for Latinas and their children who were experiencing domestic abuse. Our mission is to mobilize Latinas and Latin@ communities to end domestic violence. We are now recognized as the largest, most respected Latin@ organization in the country focused on building Latin@ leadership and ending gender-based violence.
