Partner with us to make life better for Hondurans.
Casa de Esperanza is entirely run by volunteers. We intentionally keep our overhead costs low to funnel as much money to our cause as possible. That is why 97% of your contribution goes directly to fund our programs and services in Honduras.
David Geerligs (left), father of Casa de Esperanza’s president Lori DeWitt, passed away recently. David loved spending time in Honduras and serving God’s people there. He completed many building projects in Honduras, including the bunk beds in the mission house and the cement that was laid in the Sunday school classrooms at Iglesia de Dios.

And because of a 40 percent interest rate, no one can afford to borrow money to pay for medical emergencies, home repairs, or other items we take for granted.
Your dollars can go further in providing relief in Honduras. There is a saying there, “el dólar rinde más en Honduras,” meaning “you can wring more out of a dollar in Honduras.”
