Our volunteers assist in all of our programs and allow us to continue our mission of being a House of Hope for children in crisis.
Volunteers are essential to the day-to-day work at Casa de Esperanza. Our volunteers provide support to our staff by sorting donations, preparing for special events, and providing administrative relief. Most importantly, they help drive our mission forward by providing support to our direct caregivers and the children we serve.

What Volunteers Say About Their Experience at Casa de Esperanza

"Joy enters my heart when I volunteer at Casa."

"Memories are made every week. Reading to a toddler is my favorite activity and getting a hug is always welcome."

"Casa de Esperanza has made a great difference in my life.  The children have taught me so much and I think I am a better person for all of the experiences I have shared over the years."

What our House Parents Say about Volunteers

 "Every time a volunteer comes through the door, our kids get super excited and yell their name and run to them!"

I love seeing volunteers running around with the kids or putting on dress-up clothes with them."

Volunteer Spotlight

 "I look forward to coming to Casa de Esperanza each week.  Working with kids in foster care can be challenging at times as they adjust to new surroundings.  I enjoy making up new games to entertain the kids, playing dinosaurs, and doing art projects."  Laura, Volunteer
