2024 Circle of Hope Gala

Celebrating 75 Years of Creating Forever Families

As we celebrate our 75th Anniversary at the Circle of Hope Gala, HFS would like to express our deep gratitude to the following honorees:

The Los Angeles Episcopal Diocese and The Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno, VI Bishop of Los Angeles

Bishop Bruno gave HFS a new home in 2007 when the agency became an institution of the Diocese, and since then, the Diocese has steadfastly supported our life-changing work. 

The California Endowment and retiring CEO Dr. Robert Ross

The California Endowment?s crucial support for HFS programs expanded access to health care for underserved adopted children, children in foster care, and birth parents.

The Mozilo Family Foundation

This private family foundation started by Phyllis and Angelo Mozilo has provided HFS with essential financial support for many years, helping HFS create forever families.
