Support our amazing artists and programs!

HopeSTUDIO, one of the many programs offered at Hope Services, provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to master the art of weaving while building self-confidence, self-determination, peer relationships, restoring dignity and is a key component of their self-care. Our weavers are paid artists, with a minimum of 50% of sale going directly towards their commissions. The studio is located in San Jose, CA and currently contains 15 looms. Supplies for the program are sustained through donations from the community.

About Hope Services:

In 1952, a group of concerned parents of children with special needs came together to change the way young people with developmental disabilities were treated. These courageous parents believed that their kids deserved the same opportunities as everyone else.

Over 70 years later, Hope Services is Silicon Valley’s leading provider of services to people with developmental disabilities and mental health needs. “Developmental disability” means a severe and chronic disability attributable to a mental or physical impairment that begins before adulthood, such as intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and Down syndrome. In addition, we serve those who have mental health conditions. We serve approximately 3,700 people and their families in nine Bay Area Counties and provide a broad spectrum of services.
