Hope participants make amazing additions to your workforce. Don’t have a staffing need, but have an assembly project? Hope can do it! Both solutions deliver high quality, competitive pricing, and provide real social impact, while helping to combat the 87% unemployment rate for individuals with developmental disabilities in CA.


Hope welcomes your participation! We have big plans in the coming year and we rely upon corporate sponsors and volunteers. Does your company want to adopt Hope? Support a project?

Alex…a Success Story

Alex is 22 years old and has autism. He is a recent graduate of a Hope training program where he worked as an intern at Lucile Packard Children’s and Stanford Hospitals in surgical pathology. With guidance from Hope, he caught on quickly, and made friends with his co-workers, an achievement that often eludes people with autism. Today, thanks to funders like you, Alex lives independently and works at a lab where he is responsible for sterilization and eyewashes. Help us create more bright futures for people like Alex.
