We need people who are interested in serving their community in many ways, such as planning resident activities, washing laundry, putting linens away, preparing snacks or meals, cleaning, setting up rooms for our families, and office work. You may be interested in volunteering for a specific holiday, an activity, or a period of time. Volunteers in the past have purchased groceries for families on Thanksgiving, donated phone cards or have even planned a birthday party for some of the children staying with us. Each volunteer makes an incredible difference for the families who stay at our home. Just like at your own home, there is always so much to do at Casa Esperanza!

We have the ability to accommodate volunteer groups and clubs of all sizes or just one individual. We plan many projects throughout the year, and we are so grateful to be able to say that we can rely on our volunteers to help us check them off our to-do list.

Please call our Guest Services Team to schedule a time to come and tour our facility and to fill out a volunteer application. You can reach us Monday thru Friday from 8am to 6pm, Saturdays 8am to 1pm or Sundays 8am to 3pm at 505-246-2700.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,
Cristy Holden
Director of Outreach and Fund Development

Dinner Preparations

Coming home to a meal really brightens the day and lessens the load for guest families. Through these meals, families also have a chance to connect and share their feelings and concerns with others staying at the House. Meals may be prepared in advance or cooked at the House by you or your volunteer group.
Please fill out this reservation form if you are interested in serving a meal to our families.
