Building Hope

Meet the family behind “Casa Mil’, the 1,000th Esperanza home

Before becoming involved with Fundación Esperanza de México, Carmen Cervantes lived with her three daughters and granddaughter in an unstable, one-room home in Tijuana made from scraps of wood haphazardly nailed together. The roof leaked and all five women shared a queen bed pushed together with a bunk bed. For 25 years, Carmen had been the sole caretaker of her two daughters and granddaughter, all who have severe special needs.

Fall Fiesta 2017

Thank You from Esperanza International

Our 2017 Esperanza International Fall Fiesta was a great success! Our event took place on September 23rd, in Woodinville, Washington at Pondera Winery. We enjoyed a fabulous evening of delicious food, wine, live music, and community. Our success was possible thanks to our fabulous venue hosts at Pondera Winery, our generous sponsors, incredible performers Ron Sangalang and Walt Hickey, passionate speakers, eager auction bidders and dedicated volunteers. Thank you to all who attended and donated, from near and far. Your support helps us continue our mission to cultivate global citizens and affect true community development in Tijuana, Mexico.
