September 18, 2014. Philadelphia, PA. – Esperanza, Inc. (Esperanza) is pleased to announce the Esperanza Hispanic Ministry Small Grant Fund, a new funding opportunity for Hispanic/Latino Clergy and churches located in Philadelphia County.

Established by the Hispanic Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity in 1987, Esperanza strives to demonstrate God’s call to service as expressed in Matthew 25:40.  As Esperanza and the Hispanic/Latino community continues to grow, Esperanza has expanded the size and scope of its programs to address evolving needs and to improve the economic stability of the region.  Esperanza’s growth and success is in large part due to the ongoing commitment of the local Hispanic Clergy and church and Esperanza wishes to reinvest in its supporters.
