Nueva Esperanza, A Transitional Foster Care Project Capital Campaign

Our fundraising goal is to raise $300,000 to help us complete the building.


The new building, which will replace the former metal shed building, will serve as a safe and welcoming space for children who arrive and are placed in our care. This space will be the hub where all services run for them. Foster parents will drop off and pick up the children for a little rest throughout the week. The kids in our care will be immersed in a school which fosters curiosity and wonder. This will be the first school they have ever attended for many of them. They will also receive clinical services like counseling/play therapy and meet with their case manager, who will walk them through the process of being placed with their sponsor here in the United States.
