Esperanza Community Services

Our roots date to 1969 when Guadalupe Reyes a mother with a disabled son decided to create the academic and developmental services that were not available to her child anywhere else. The dedication and advocacy that helped create Esperanza are still at the core of our work and drive us to continue meeting the needs of developmentally disabled individuals from low-income families. Esperanza Community Services is an agency that is outcomes-focused in all of our programs.
