Every human life is valuable. Every human being deserves to live a good life. Each one has unique gifts to offer.
Hillside House provides a loving home and therapeutic learning community for 59 remarkable people, who live with developmental disabilities. We provide 24-hour nursing care, 3 nutritious meals per day, a safe and adaptive living and learning environment, medical care, clothing, transportation, a wide range of therapies including physical, speech and occupational therapies, and a host of educational and life-enrichment activities, so that each of our residents can live a rewarding life.
The people who live and learn at Hillside House are exceptional people. They live with extraordinary challenges and they also offer extraordinary gifts to those who meet them. They are profound teachers of love, generosity, patience, perseverance, and much more.
The people who make Hillside House their home and their community need help to live. They need a caring community to survive. And we are here for them, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, providing them all they need to live a meaningful life. We help them reach for their dreams and follow their passions. We help them discover their abilities and express themselves. We help them get out in the world and have new experiences. And they help us. They create an extraordinary environment of love and appreciation.
To provide the care that we offer our residents, we must reach out to our extended community for support. The cost of the care we provide exceeds what we receive from state payments by about $1,500 a day. Due to recent Medi-Cal funding cuts, we now depend on the compassion and generosity of others for over 14% of our day-to-day operating costs.
Your generous support helps to create a thriving campus where our residents can live well, learn and grow. Your gift makes meaningful lives.
