Casa de Esperanza provides comprehensive residential, medical and psychological care to some of Houston's most vulnerable youth - infants and young children whose lives have been disrupted by abuse, neglect, or the effects of the AIDS virus. Casa seeks to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing residential care to children in crisis in conjunction with counseling and support services to the family. In order to provide permanency for those children, whose families will never be able to safely or adequately care for them. Casa is licensed to supervise long-term foster care and adoptive placements. A critical component of Casa's residential care plan is the medical stabilization and supervision of children in placement.
