To support and assist the families of the Blyhte Street neighborhood to be self-sufficient and create their best possible future.
The IHM Blythe Street Project-Casa Esperanza empowers the 3,000 residents of this low income and crime-ridden neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley to access education and charitable resources necessary to change the circumstances of their lives. Individuals visit Casa Esperanza seeking advice or access to one of the many programs. All services are offered at no cost.
This place is ok if you have to complete community service hours, they will sign just about anything if you "do the time." I don't recommend it if you are looking to seriously volunteer, they really don't have a volunteer program therefore staff don't really take the time out to thoroughly discuss different aspects where you might feel comfortable helping, nor do they give you any feedback. Basically once you fill out your volunteer form they automatically place you as a tutor and you sign in and sign out as you please. There's really no structure to anything.
