PBA is proud to serve in ministry with Esperanza, a premiere Hispanic faith-based network in the country dedicated to issues impacting Hispanic communities.  Led by visionary activists and thought leaders, Esperanza delivers programs and services to the  Philadelphia community and works with over 12,000 clergy, churches, and community leaders across the country to strengthen Hispanic communities.

Esperanza was established in 1987 with support from the Hispanic Clergy of Philadelphia who rallied together to serve a community suffering from poverty, unstable housing, low educational attainment, and high crime.  With a strong community development presence, multiple educational institutions, advocacy and capacity building initiatives,  a robust national network of  clergy, faith-based organizations and community leaders, Esperanza has become one of the leading voices for Hispanics in America.
