Esperanza United (House of Hope) works nationally to enhance Latin@s’ access to resources and support, conducting culturally relevant research, advocating for policy responsive to Latin@s, and providing training and consultation to organizations working with Latin@s. In Minnesota, the organization shelters and advocates for Latin@s and their children, changes community attitudes about domestic violence, and facilitates community networks.

Esperanza United was looking for a reputable, local firm to provide database consultation and construction services for their existing FileMaker Pro database. They needed a company that specialized in security and believed in their mission. LuminFire is the only FileMaker Business Alliance Platinum partner in the world that specializes in HIPAA compliance. We provide specialized hosting services required as well as support. In addition, our products including fmIgnite are unique and offer incredible value to our clients.

LuminFire moved their solution to a secure data center in the cloud. Then we made it possible for remote organization staff and volunteers to have access. Using fmIgnite as a base, we rebuilt and updated their Direct Client Services area to better reflect their workflow. We are also currently building out a tracking system for their training, & Technical Assistance.

We decreased duplicate data entry and redundant work by streamlining work when appropriate and created new reporting systems across the app.

We love assisting non-profits that do good work in our world. Esperanza took advantage of our matching grant program to make their funds go further.

“We have found it very helpful to have such an amazing application in fmIgnite/FileMaker to use as a centralized database. We struggled previously without such a tool and now it’s easy to find information and be able to put together a the story showing how many people we are helping.” – Esperanza staff member
