Launched in 2012, Villa’s Hope Moves Forward capital campaign has seen great momentum. Villa Esperanza Services is proud to be upgrading our campus to match the quality of services we provide. Accomplishments to date include:
Villa’s Master Facilities Plan was unanimously approved by the City of Pasadena in September 2014.
Villa purchased and renovated a new building for Dimensions Adult Day Program. Clients and staff moved into the new space in January 2016.
Implementation of Phase I of school campus began in Spring 2016 with the construction of temporary modules - five temporary classrooms for our middle and high school students were built along with a double module for our Speech and Language Center.
Villa students and staff moved into the modules in October 2016.
Demolition and site prep for Phase I of the new campus began in December 2016.
July 2017 construction began.
The Villa School Groundbreaking took place on October 3, 2017.

“What might Villa’s children say? ‘Hello. I am Alice, I am Renard, and I am Ishmal, and I am each of you. Can you hear me? I have worth, and I can do many things. I am a part of our community. I deserve the same opportunity and facilities that you have in your home community. Sometimes I just need a little help from my friends. Thank you for being my friend!’ The Ayrshire Foundation is proud to be a part of this important project.”
