Founded in 1987, the Friends of Hancock Park School (FoHPS) is a non-profit organization of parent volunteers who raise money, organize activities and support the instructional program, to benefit the children of our school.
All parents at Hancock Park Elementary School are automatically members of the Friends of Hancock Park School. We have an annual operating budget of approx. $375,000. which is necessary to round out the school program and fill in the funding gaps left by the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).
