Esperanza Community Housing Corporation has made significant achievements with the community through the rehabilitation of buildings and providing affordable housing to low income families.  Recently, three Esperanza members -Fabiola, Monic, and Shawn- were interviewed by National Public Radio and had the opportunity to speak their concerns on affordable housing.

Monic, a promotora, a community leader, Esperanza’s Data Analyst, and a tenant of Esperanza’s affordable housing said:

We have already created an identity in this community for so many decades and it is not fair that with these developments, we are being pushed out.  We are ready to fight for our community.
