Casa de Esperanza’s Residential Program recruits foster parents for our Family Based Care program who have a desire to serve children ages birth through six years old who have been abused, neglected, or are HIV-exposed/positive.  Our neighborhood brings together interns and Family Based Care foster parents to live and work with some of our society’s most vulnerable children.  Care is provided in the Residential Program’s agency foster homes.

There is only one reason a child ever comes to Casa de Esperanza – because they are not safe.
