Hope Center for the Arts (HOPE) continues to work with Regional Center of Orange County to keep close watch on alerts from the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and government officials regarding health and safety protocols and precautions regarding the COVID-19/novel coronavirus. Due to the continuing statewide ‘shelter in place’ order put forth by Governor Gavin Newsom on March 19th, and the guidance of Regional Center of Orange County to not resume day program services until this order has lifted, HOPE’S site remains closed.


We are a proud vendor of Regional Center, a nonprofit organization that is committed to serving disabled families. We also cater to private students upon request. Please contact us for more information regarding tuition/private pay options.

With the closures due to COVID19 I’ve had an opportunity to hear parts of your instruction that you have been giving thru Zoom. Once again Hope continues to impress and warm my heart with the informative & personal instructions the staff is providing. The staff is very dedicated and working thru the challenges with online classes. Though online feel they are just as connected.

Thank you for continuing to provide excellent service
