About Casa de la Esperanza
History of the program
Community Action Programs worked with the Boulder County Commissioners, the Boulder County Housing Authority and other community members to make this award-winning housing community a reality. The first migrant families moved in during the fall of 1993. CAP staff worked with the site manager to hire a bilingual coordinator June 1994. For over twenty years, the program has been responsive to the unique needs of the dozens of farm worker families of the Casa de la Esperanza community. The program has served hundreds of families and children over the years.
Mission of our educational center
Casa de la Esperanza’s educational center is a state-of-the-art learning center providing opportunities and resources toward excellence and self-empowerment through collaboration and programming that nurture each individual’s potential.
Our vision is one of a thriving community that encourages those around us by exemplifying the ideals of education, leadership, and self-sustainability.
The Casa de la Esperanza program was initiated to serve the 100+ children and youth living on site. Partnerships with local agencies and groups provided many resources and services that have greatly benefited the community for several years. Hundreds of volunteers from the local universities, corporations and the community have contributed thousands of hours of service to the Casa community annually as tutors, robotics mentors, teaching classes, organizing activities and events.
