The NOVA Foundation was established in November of 2002, as a non-stock, non-profit organization to fulfill the mission envisioned by Mr. Manuel V. Agcaoili, himself, a person with disability. It is one of the leading organizations committed to promoting the inclusion, participation, access and welfare of persons with disabilities (PWDs) in acquiring skills training and employment opportunities. To implement its programs, a premiere ICT Training Center was set up with the support of the Christoffel Blindenmission (CBM) of Germany. It became operational in October 2005. In 2006, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority granted the Foundation a TVET Program Registration Certificate WTR No. 0613040217.

In October 1, 2012, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde through the School of Professional and Continuing Education (SPaCE) took over the operations of the training center and was renamed Saint Brother Jaime Hilario Institute. Saint Jaime Hilario, FSC or Manuel Barbal Cosan was born in Enviny, a small town at the foot of the Pyrenees in Northern Spain. He entered the seminary at the age of 12 and soon developed hearing problems.

The Saint Brother Jaime Hilario Institute is committed to capacitate persons with disability with the knowledge, skills, abilities and behavior that will enable them to be productive citizens.
