The Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose are committed to teaching the young and the poor, offering hope and empowerment through the best quality Catholic education possible. The Sisters provide educational leadership in 22 schools. Seven are inner-city elementary schools, serving more than 2,000 students on eight campuses: three in San FranciscoÕs Mission District, three in East Los Angeles, and two in South Central Los Angeles. In 1995 the Dominican Congregation established Vision of Hope to perpetuate ongoing financial support for their inner-city schools. The mission of Vision of Hope is to ensure the quality, affordability and vibrant future of these inner-city schools, the children, and the communities they serve.
