other ways of helping!
Individuals volunteering in their professional capacity provide essential services in the areas of medical care, finance, information technology, and professional facilities maintenance.
Volunteers with clerical or computer skills assist administrative staff with data entry, filing, photocopying, mailing, and clerical work.
Casa de Esperanza's major fundraising events (Chili Cook-Off and Gala) are held annually in the Spring. Volunteers assist with planning, invitations, registration, decorations, entertainment, live and silent auctions, set-up and clean-up.
