Casa Esperanza – Albuquerque’s House of Hope
We provide appropriate housing and emotional support for patients and their families who reside temporarily in Albuquerque while the patient receives treatment. Casa Esperanza’s families come to us from all backgrounds and income levels, but they share one thing in common – each family is facing fear and emotional upheaval.
Casa Esperanza’s Facilities
Casa Esperanza is located in Albuquerque, NM at 1005 Yale NE, bordered by UNM North Golf Course, walking paths and designated open space. This quiet location is convenient to all Albuquerque hospitals. Casa Esperanza, an 18,000 square foot residence, can accommodate 28 families at a time, for both long and short-term stays.
Twelve suites and 16 rooms (4 fully handicap-accessible), all fully furnished, offer family living space separate from sleeping areas, and each of the 28 family units has a private phone with voice mail, bathroom and television. Four fully equipped kitchens, a common dining area, and a spacious common room encourage personal responsibility, therapeutic interaction and sharing among families. The fully fenced backyard playground enhances the family atmosphere. The conference room offers a quiet space for individual, family, or small group counseling, and families have complete privacy in their individual rooms and suites.
In 2009, Kathleen Phillips Hellman, of Capitan NM, designed and created memorial stained glass windows for the lobby of Casa Esperanza in memory of her husband, Bob Hellman.
