Villa Esperanza

Our Villa Esperanza Drop-In Center is a friendly, confidential, supportive, informal home-away-from-home where the homeless or anyone else who lacks a place to be can simply drop-in to socialize. It’s a place where people who share similar circumstances can visit and spend time without worry or fear of judgment. Villa Esperanza can restore a sense of community to people whose social connections have been lost.

We offer support groups, the opportunity to build peer to peer connections, meetings, workshops, mediation, self advocacy, and access to more structured programs of counseling and case management. If you or someone you know would like more information on Villa Esperanza, please get in touch. We welcome inquiries, and our caring professional staff and consumers always welcome new visitors.

Villa Esperanza is a warm, caring social and family atmosphere where informality and acceptance can lead to transformation and change in important areas of personal growth:

  • DECISION-MAKING, SELF-CONFIDENCE, MOTIVATION, & SELF-ESTEEM Visitors make their own choices about when to come and go and what to do, building confidence and a basis for decision-making in other areas of life in a setting where social and peer acceptance are the rule.
  • FAMILY, FRIENDSHIPS, & IDENTITY The Center has the atmosphere of home and an extended family, a place that nurtures growth of familial bonds and friendships based on shared experiences and personal histories. Its a place without the labels of disease, treatment, or medications that govern the experiences of our visitors and guests in other settings.
  • ADVOCACY, EMPOWERMENT, & COURAGE One of the great strengths of our drop-in center is how it acts on the social confidence of guests and visitors. Social awareness helps to build insight, understanding, self-confidence and the capacity of visitors to act on their own behalf.
  • EDUCATION, KNOWLEDGE, PROBLEM-SOLVING Our visitors, each bring their unique knowledge and resources to a process of informal sharing and exchange at the Center, including useable information, referrals, sources of food and housing, as well as knowledge and experiences of the mental health system and how it has affected their lives. Our drop-in consumers choose their own activities, grow at their own pace, and focus on personal goals, bringing newly acquired skills and insight to their lives in the community.
  • ENCOURAGEMENT, DIFFUSION OF CRISES Villa Esperanza is a place of encouragement and belonging, where the strength of the social fabric and relationships provide an honest and reliable haven for support, hope, emotional stability, and friendship in times of crisis for people who often lead lives of isolation in the community.

Residential Re-entry

Our Residential Re-Entry program offers a safe, supportive, residential environment for Federal Bureau of Prisons inmates who are returning to community life after incarceration.

Community reentry is a complicated and difficult transition for adults being released from prison. It is burdened with what can appear to be insurmountable practical, psychological, and stigmatic barriers.

Adults in re-entry face significant problems in social adjustment, reconnecting with family and friends, finding employment or a place to live, risk of alcohol or drug use, and the risk of recidivism.

We provide transition assistance necessary to sustain life for inmates returning to life in the community. The program is designed to reduce recidivism,improving the prospects of adults in our care to live independently by building their capacity to address transitional indepoendent living issues:

    • HOUSING Many former prisoners are able to live, at least temporarily, with family members, but those who cannot face limited housing options and little help in finding a place to stay.
  • EMPLOYMENT The stigma of prison often complicates other barriers such as low levels of educational attainment, limited work experience and vocational skills, employment opportunities, and many employers are hesitant to hire former prisoners.
  • HEALTH Former prisoners are more likely to have major mental disorders and chronic and infectious disease, but many live in communities with inadequate healthcare access.
  • SUBSTANCE USE, EMOTIONAL, AND MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS A majority of prisoners have extensive substance abuse histories and most identified drug use as the primary cause of their problems, but fewer than one-third receive treatment after release.
  • COMMUNITY REENTRY As a society, we have significant numbers of prisoners returning to a small number of communities, many of which are facing high levels of social and economic disadvantages.
