This year for #GivingTuesday we are turning up the heat to raise $20,000 for Esperanza's Patient Emergency fund. Esperanza's patient emergency fund addresses our patients' most urgent social welfare needs. If a patient suddenly can't make rent, has come up short on the gas bill, or afford food or medicine for their family , the Patient Emergency Fund is there for them. This assistance keeps patients sheltered, clothed, and fed, preventing their lives from being upended. It also affords them the stability to remain engaged in their health.
