A Community Education, Health, and Recreation Resource of California Hospital Medical Center
Hope Street Family Center (HSFC) was established in 1992 as a community program of California Hospital Medical Center. Original program funding was provided by a research and demonstration grant from the federal Head Start Bureau as a national effort to develop more effective ways to support young children and families.
Hope Street Family Center has been recognized as a national model for integrating healthcare within its community and has received the national NOVA Award (2002), presented by the American Hospital Association in honor of the center’s success in improving community health; the Catholic Healthcare West Faith In Action Award (2005); and the 2004 Federal Interagency Coordinating Council Communities of Excellence Award, which honored HSFC as an exemplary national model of integrated supports for children and families. Hope Street Family Center also has been recognized by Harvard University’s Pathways Mapping Initiative as a model school readiness program and by the Administration for Children & Families, as a national Quality Early Head Start/Head Start Program (2007).
HSFC offers a variety of programs that fall into three major categories: (1) early childhood education, (2) family literacy, and (3) family support/home visiting. Many programs include more than one of these elements.
