Update: We Own The House! ♥ ♥ ♥
Casa Esperanza Bakersfield aims to provide the Bakersfield community with a beautiful home and the various services required to help our local homeless women re-enter the job force, parent their children, and ultimately transition to permanent housing.
We were recently informed Casa Esperanza Transitional Home for Women and Children has a legal right to purchase any house for our intended purpose.
Therefore, we moved forward on the purchase of a very large home with off-street parking on Panorama Drive by Bakersfield College. We closed escrow in May 2021, and renovations are underway.
The homeless women in our community, many with children, for whom hard circumstances have worn down their sense of dignity and worthiness, will benefit from the beautiful dwelling and safe social environment we hope to provide for them.
Equally important, the job readiness skills and the financial and home management skills our innovative and holistic program will provide will equip them for a successful transition to permanent housing, employment with a sustainable wage, and a renewed sense of well-being and self-esteem.
We value your support in whatever way and at whatever level you offer. We look forward to opening Casa Esperanza Bakersfield very soon.
