How You Can Help

The generosity of donors, volunteers, and HopeTHRIFT shoppers helps make the work of Hope Services possible.


There Are Many Ways To Help

Helping the developmentally disabled of the San Francisco Bay Area is a big job, and we always need more support.

We receive partial funding from the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and the regional centers created by The Lanterman Act. We also receive some grants. However, a big portion of our support comes from individuals like you, who help by donating, by volunteering, by hiring our people, and by shopping at our thrift stores.
