Creating awareness and visibility for LGBTQ+ people in Santa Maria and surrounding cities.

House of Pride and Equality (HOPE) / Casa de Orgullo e Igualdad (ESPERANZA) is a grassroots organization that began in 2016 due to a lack of Latinx (Latino/a) focused LGBTQ+ spaces allowing people that have similar interests and obstacles to find and support each other. 


hope / esperanza hosts events and activities that promote unity, visibility, advocacy and social change. 


HOPE / esperanza needs your help to continue building community and fighting for equity and all human rights.
