Founded more than 60 years ago, Hope Services improves the quality of life for more than 3,500 individuals and families each year.  Hope’s vision is to promote a common understanding that the world is a better place when people with disabilities are fully integrated into the community and culture.  To that end, Hope provides a broad array of programs including day services, training and employment, community living, and mental health services to children, adults and seniors living in Santa Clara, San Benito, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, Monterey, and Alameda counties. Delivered by highly skilled, compassionate teams, Hope transitioned all in-person services to a virtual platform, From Hope to Home, within one week of Shelter-in-Place, and has since added new robust programming.  This is a nimble organization that is responsive and opportunistic in service to Hope’s clients.

The newly created Chief Program Officer (CPO) position is designed to provide leadership and vision to improve and better support Hope’s clients, and actively drive the exploration of new programmatic opportunities. With ultimate oversight for all programs, the CPO will provide collaborative leadership to a team of five directors who manage more than 500 staff operating in four districts and the Behavioral Health Counseling Center. The CPO will identify and provide professional development opportunities to prepare the organization for the next generation of program leaders.

The FY21 operating budget for Hope Services is $57M, of which approximately $38M is budgeted for programs, an increase of 11.5% from FY20, a trend that is expected to continue in the foreseeable future. Nearly two-thirds of Hope’s revenue is derived from government contracts and funding, with the balance earned from social enterprises, contributed revenue, and other sources. Hope employs approximately 650 full-time employees, and another 200 part-time, temporary workers.
