Casa Esperanza, or New Mexico's "House of Hope," is a hospitality house and a full-service facility that serves pediatric and adult patients that have been referred to the Albuquerque area for cancer or major medical treatment. This nonprofit organization provides assistance, support, and services to affected individuals and their families across 33 counties statewide. Casa Esperanza is one of the oldest and most respectable hospitality homes in New Mexico.

About Casa Esperanza

Casa Esperanza is devoted to providing access to affordable lodging and support services to New Mexico's residents who live in rural areas. Quite often, individuals with serious medical conditions must travel great distances to obtain the healthcare services they need. Lack of access to sophisticated medical aid and distance to medical treatment facilities can result in poor patient outcomes, especially for individuals who live in economically depressed locations. Racial and ethnic minority groups are more likely to have adverse patient outcomes as well. In addition to medical treatment, individuals who suffer from major illnesses and diseases may not have access to the support services and lodging facilities they need.
