Real stories from the Hogar – When there are few options

At 45, Martha has few options. Her partner left and she is alone to care for her three children with no support. With little education or employment opportunities, her options are limited. Her recycling income brings in enough to pay her rent, but not enough for food and other necessities. Martha has enrolled in the support program at Hogar de Esperanza (Home of Hope). She not only gets regular food supports, but she also attends our workshops.

Every week, we teach women new skills. This past week, 12 women participated in our sewing and crafts workshops. We believe that although giving food is important, we need to help individuals learn new skills and give them the confidence to find solutions to their situations. Our workshops do just that and many have gone on to find employment.
