With over 5,400 votes, Hope Street came in first place in Aetna’s Voices of Health competition. The winning prize of $20,000 will support a new early care and education center at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, directly across from USC’s main campus. The center, Hope Street’s fourth in our community, will open in July 2020. Thanks to all of our friends and supporters who voted—we couldn’t have done it without you!

Hope Street has been awarded a $40,000 grant from the Herman Miller Cares Foundation and is proud to carry on its vision of “inspiring the next generation to do great things by becoming civil citizens and stewards of humanity.” Ramona Quinn, Herman Miller Business Development Manager and Hope Street Advisory Board member, facilitated this partnership. Funding will be used to support the renovation of and to furnish our newest early care and education center at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. Hope Street’s Margolis Family Center also selected Herman Miller furnishings when the facility opened in 2013. Herman Miller’s carefully considered and practically designed furniture and fixtures have enabled our families to receive services in a welcoming, creative and warm environment. We are incredibly grateful to Ramona Quinn and Herman Miller Cares Foundation for this award.

Cheers to Our Donors!

Jonathan Club graciously hosted an evening of appreciation for Hope Street donors and friends to thank them for their support of our Summer of Science program. Guests were treated to exquisite food and wine on Jonathan Club’s rooftop garden, overlooking downtown LA. As guests took in the amazing view, Hope Street students were proud to showcase their artwork and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) projects. Inspiring interest in STEAM subjects and careers among our students is a primary focus of Hope Street’s After-school and Summer of Science programs – both made possible through our donors’ generous support.

Halloween at Hope Street: 
We hope everyone had a spook-tastic Halloween!

Our After-school program kids dressed up in costumes and had a scarily fun time going through Hope Street’s “haunted” library, making arts and crafts and of course, indulging in lots of treats.

Seventy of our preschool children were lucky enough to be invited by AEG to trick-or-treat. Over 300 local children and families spent Halloween morning trick-or-treating throughout AEG’s downtown LA offices, STAPLES Center and L.A. Live. AEG has hosted this annual trick-or-treating event for more than 10 years.
Hope Street is incredibly grateful for our donors, supporters and especially for the children and families who allow us to be part of their lives. To show our gratitude, we will be hosting a Thanksgiving feast for families on November 26th. We can’t wait to have lots of turkey, pumpkin pie and fun!
