Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide homeless women and children in the Bakersfield area with an innovative and holistic program, supporting their transition to permanent housing and stable employment. We believe in nurturing their potential, restoring their sense of dignity, and helping them rewrite their life stories.

Description

In 2014, several Bakersfield women entertained the possibility of establishing a home for women transitioning from homelessness to economic stability and permanent housing. They did so recognizing that the population of homeless women is the largest growing segment of our society.
With five founding members, efforts were made to identify individuals who, together, would become a robust Board of Directors capable of "standing in the future-fulfilled" and committed to moving that vision forward into reality. Casa Esperanza is blessed with a Board whose members exemplify that same vision, passion and commitment.
In every aspect of its operation, Casa Esperanza will honor the inherent dignity and personal worth of the home’s resident women and children. A positive self-image and sense of worth are operative factors toward one’s success in dealing with adversity, hence, the physical dwelling itself will reflect the dignity of its residents.

I expressed interest over a month ago and have not heard from anybody. This makes me wonder why there are listings for volunteers...
