On behalf of the HFS Board of Directors and staff, we hope that you will be able to join us on May 4th for our first full-scale in-person Circle of Hope gathering in 3 years. After several years of virtual events, we are ready to gather again and hope you can join us!

This year, we will be honoring our 30-year association with the Sisters of Social Service as they celebrate their Jubilee Year.  Established in Hungary in May of 1923, the Sisters of Social Service, well known for their work in nursing, midwifery, and orphanage services, came to the United States later that year and founded the Sisters of Social Service in Los Angeles in 1926.

HFS and the Sisters have a three-decade-long shared history that dates back to 1963, 14 years after HFS was founded. That year, the Sisters took over the administration and development of HFS from the Franciscan Sisters and ably led our organization for the next thirty years. Sr. Bertille Prus, LCSW, became Executive Director of HFS in 1963 until her retirement in 1991.  Sr. Mary Phyllis McCarthy, PhD, was then Executive Director from 1991 to 1993. With gratitude for their leadership, HFS is honored to celebrate the Sisters of Social Services Jubilee Year and our 30-year relationship with them.

Whether you join us on May 4th or simply make a contribution, your support of the Circle of Hope helps us fulfill our mission of serving families and vulnerable children in the greater Los Angeles area. Please join our “Circle of Hope” by donating to HFS on behalf of this annual event.
