A Different December: Casa Esperanza

The second week of The Garrity Group Different December outreach will focus on Casa Esperanza.  Members of our team will cook its guests an authentic New Mexican dinner with the help of the generous donations of Bueno Foods.

Founded in 1987, Casa Esperanza provides a home away from home for families facing cancer. Casa Esperanza serves families who are referred to Albuquerque for cancer treatment, regardless of their financial situation. Today the 18,000 square-foot residence can accommodate 28 families at a time. In addition to housing, Casa Esperanza also provides clinical counseling as well as patient navigation and survivor services to support cancer patients.

Amanda Molina, Director of Public Relations for The Garrity Group, selected Casa Esperanza as her charity of choice for a Different December.  “I choose Casa Esperanza as an organization for our team to work with because being away from  home is hard and being away from home while ill or tending to an ill family member is harder, especially during the holiday season. The comfort that Casa Esperanza provides to patients and their families is invaluable and a true gift to our community and state, I am thrilled that our team can be a part of such a great program.”

There are multiple ways you can help by donating your time cooking a meal, volunteering at a special fundraising event or providing administrative support. Casa Esperanza is also in need of a variety of kitchen, office and house supplies. Please visit to learn more about how you can help.
