Excerpt from Esperanza's Media Advisory:
Esperanza held a groundbreaking ceremony at the former Roberto Clemente Middle School building to celebrate the many partners that came together to advance affordable housing in Hunting Park on Friday, Oct. 13.
Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney had nothing but the highest praise for the transformative work Esperanza is doing in Hunting Park. He congratulated Rev. Luis Cortes, Founder, President & CEO of Esperanza, for his mission and vision for the community. The Mayor gathered along with other political and community leaders from across the city, as well as Esperanza staff members and neighbors, for the celebration.
“Esperanza is changing lives, and that should be celebrated,” said Mayor Kenney. “Projects like these make our neighborhoods safer. By building stronger communities, we’re building a stronger economy.”
