ESPERANZA DE TEJAS
Since Fall 2019, Esperanza de Tejas has been part of the nonprofit and community development dialogue happening here in the Coastal Bend.
On January 29, 2020, Esperanza received its 501c(3) status. Dedicated to enhancing community access to fresh food, healthcare, supplies, and skills needed for education, Esperanza's primary goal is the rehabilitation of communities that lack resources for upward mobility.
We strive to build HOPE for communities through community engagement, comprehensive programs and social service initiatives. Our motto is "Amor y Esperanza" (Love & Hope), and we believe we can uplift the communities we serve by adhering to this philosophy.
