The Hanot Story
A Special Place from the Beginning
Sister Madeleine Hanot inspired a group of parents and interested friends to provide a home-like residence for disabled adults in the early 1970's. Established in 1973 as a nonprofit corporation, Hanot Foundation provides a warm and loving environment for 35 permanent residents and some 30 respite families who take advantage of Hanot's services on an occasional basis.
Residents consider Hanot their home. Each person is valued for their personal character, not just their accomplishments. A caring staff supports their efforts to achieve greater self-sufficiency. A spirit of "family" is fostered on every level.
The Hanot Foundation owns and operates two homes in the Central Valley of Northern California. Both homes are located outside the town of Lockeford in a natural rustic setting.
Our original home serves thirty adults who are not capable of living on their own, but have the desire to be as independent and self-sufficient as possible. The other home, Mary Frances Hat Facility is home to six seniors who are also developmentally disabled. This home serves both ambulatory and non-ambulatory residents. It specializes in the care and supervision of the medically fragile, who are not in need of hospital or convalescent care.
Each of the Hanot homes provides a supervised but full life for the residents. Under the supervision of a caring staff, residents are encouraged and challenged to reach their full potential.
