Policy Council

Hope Street Margolis Family Center has a formal Policy Council which consists of current or past parents participating in Hope Street Margolis Family Center programming. The Policy Council participates in and approves the hiring of personnel; participates in the development and approval of budgets, budget modifications, and grant applications; assists with program planning and development efforts via members’ participation in annual self-assessment and community assessment processes; and plans and conducts monthly Parent Committee meetings.

The Policy Council meets monthly, with sub-committee meetings on a more frequent basis. Additionally, parents are encouraged to volunteer and participate in California Hospital Medical Center and Hope Street Margolis Family Center activities.
