Transforming Communities One Home at a Time


At Esperanza, we know that stable housing is a key part of community transformation and gives families the foundation upon which to build success in other areas of their lives. Esperanza’s Housing Counseling department has been assisting, empowering, and educating families and individuals for over two decades through dedicated free counseling sessions and workshops.

“Our mission is to help each one of our clients to achieve a sustainable and self-sufficient housing situation,” Maria Iannarelli Executive Director of Esperanza Housing Counseling explained. “We are here to guide them to understand the housing process, to evaluate their situation, and to empower them to achieve their goals.”

A home is more than just a roof over someone’s head, or shelter: a home is critical to the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of families; the place where they build strong relationships; and the place from which they can thrive in their education and careers.

Thanks to your continued support, we have been helping people find “a place to call home” through our housing counseling services for nearly two decades. Read Sherell Leland story.
