“Give a man a fish, he eats for a day; Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime”.  That saying aptly describes the services provided by La Esperanza.  Whether assisting an immigrant on the path toward citizenship, helping a victim of domestic violence to develop a safety plan; or translating documents for our clients, the goal of La Esperanza is to provide our Latino community with the tools they need to be self sufficient.  The path to self sufficiency will be different for each person who enters our office looking for support.  In 2017, we have served more than 2,300 individuals.  Your donation will allow us to continue to provide critical services in our community.

Volunteer your time/Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at La Esperanza is a rewarding experience. We offer numerous ways for you to get involved and help make a difference in the lives of Sussex County Latino families and communities.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Events – in 2018, we hope to have at least four fundraising activities.  Do you enjoy event planning and implementation?  We need volunteers to help us plan, organize, set up and break down at the end of events.

Fundraising –

Grantwriter – are you a good writer, have you ever written grants for nonprofits.  Here’s a great opportunity to make a difference.

Chaperone – we often take our youth out on activities throughout Delaware and are always looking for adult volunteers to chaperone.  Any adult chaperoning “kids” must have a background check.

Translation – are you fluent in Spanish or Creole?  We can use your language skills to translate and interpret documents.  Sussex County has a growing Haitian community who we are serving and there is a significant need for Creole language skills.
