Policy Council


Hope Street Family Center has a formal Policy Council which consists of current or past parents participating in Hope Street 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 Family Center activities.

Hope Street Family Center seeks to include the voice of the community within the programmatic design of all of its services, not only hearing but actively listening to our community.
