Hindu Community Institute (HCI) is a California non-profit 501(c)(3) educational institution, located in Milpitas, CA 95035. HCI was founded in 2018 by SF Bay Area professionals to serve the community by integrating contemporary knowledge, technologies and Hindu wisdom. The founding group recognized that this highly accomplished and affluent Bay Area community also needs to address the important matter of pride in its rich spiritual heritage and actively enable compassionate assistance to all those in need.

HCI is committed to enhancing the quality of life through three distinct avenues,

1) Service-Learning (CHT Course): Help professionals learn to serve through the Counselor of Hindu Tradition (CHT) course. Trained CHT's serve through  self-organized service network

2) Social Infrastructure (Online and Call-in system): Create a readily available, state-of-the-art system for guidance on Hindu wisdom tradition and the quality of life

3) Process Excellence (Field Operations Manual): Professionalize the delivery of community services through open-source processes and model collaboration between Hindu-Vedic and Interfaith service organizations
