About Us

Esperanza del Barrio's mission is to assist the self-empowerment of Latina immigrants in El Barrio (East Harlem) and their families through grassroots organizing, political/legal education, and leadership development.

We also serve Latino immigrants living in throughout New York City by providing an array of services in the areas of community organizing, adult education, business entrepreneurship training, leadership development, health education, children’s tutoring, legal services, and youth development.

Founded in 2003 by six Mexican immigrant street vendors, Esperanza del Barrio has grown to serve over 500 members, seeking ways to become successful small business owners, and organize and protect themselves from discriminatory treatment.
