Inspiring Faith and Hope in Inner-City Schools
Nurturing Success, Impacting the Future
Welcome to Vision of Hope, which for 20 years has provided financial support for eight inner-city schools sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose. These schools serve more than 1,800 students in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our mission is to ensure the quality, affordability and vibrant future of the schools, the children and the communities they serve.
This year our Annual Fund Campaign seeks to raise $1 million to respond to the current challenges of our families and schools in the areas of direct tuition assistance, technology, curricular and administrative support.

Vision of Hope schools re creating effective classrooms for disadvantaged children, with teachers who are not only providing an excellent education, but also building character and personal responsibility in each student. Vision of Hope schools instill students with core values that will impact them for a lifetime – values like hard work, charity and generosity nurtured in the everyday behavior of each student.
This is my first year at St. Frances X. Cabrini School, and I love it so much. Everyone here makes you feel like family. Our principal and teachers are all wonderful and always try to help you. I want to be here till I graduate from 8th grade and then go on to a Catholic High School.
What excites me most about Vision of Hope is the visible impact on our students. We know that the work we do has an immediate effect on our students.
