Historical Note

Founded in 1912 as the National Jewish Consumptive Relief Association of Southern California, in tents in Duarte, CA, the City of Hope offered treatment and services as a sanatorium for tubercular patients of any religious or ethnic background. Local chapters were started across the country to help raise funds for the hospital. The Gussie K. Singer Chapter #4 of the City of Hope was founded in 1928 as the Jewish Consumptive Relief Association of San Diego. It was the second chapter formed, and is the oldest chapter still in existence.
