A firm with heart and soul.

When we say we’re a firm with a big heart, we’re not just referring to the 600-lb. sculpture in our San Francisco office. Hood & Strong has always had an ethos of giving back and a commitment to the communities where our team members live and work. Over the years, we have been awarded the prestigious Corporate Volunteer of the Year award from the Volunteer Center of San Francisco and the Outstanding Corporate Volunteer award from the Volunteer Exchange of Santa Clara County.

We are proud to give each of our team members four hours of paid time off each month to volunteer with a nonprofit of their choice. Nearly 100% of our team members honor this commitment by participating in a regular volunteer activity or serving on a nonprofit board.
