WAUKESHA-Hundreds turned out Friday to support La Casa de Esperanza.

It began as a daycare center in 1966 to help children from solely Spanish speaking families ease into an English speaking environment.

Now, it has expanded to offering programs for all stages of education, employment and housing.

It is something applauded by guest speaker and television personality Rachel Campos-Duffy.

"That kind of peace of mind is simply priceless," Campos-Duffy, who is married to Wisconsin lawmaker Sean Duffy told the crowd, " and that alone makes La Casa de Esperanza a valuable lifeline for the parents of this community."

CBS 58 and Telemundo Wisconsin bilingual anchor and reporter Carlos Vergara served as emcee.
