More than 50 years ago, a group of concerned parents who had special needs children came together to change the way young people with developmental disabilities were treated. These courageous parents believed that their kids deserved the same opportunities as everyone else.
Among their earliest achievements was Hope for Retarded Children, one of the first preschools for children with developmental disabilities. In 1952, 12 children walked through the door of a one-room schoolhouse in San Jose and entered a new world - a world where they could receive an education and make friends.
The founding families of what later grew to become Hope Services left a lasting legacy that reflects a simple philosophy: All people with developmental disabilities should be able to live and participate in their communities. It is this timeless philosophy that has guided the mission of HOPE Services for decades.
Today, we provide comprehensive services to more than 3,700 individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders, mental retardation, Down’s syndrome and other related conditions.
HOPE Services delivers a range of employment and job training programs, developmental activities, professional counseling, children's services (age 0-3), senior services, community living services and mobility training for over 2,500 children, adults and seniors.
