Working with the World's Most Needy and Vulnerable
HOPE worldwide is a faith-based relief and development organization founded in 1991 that is dedicated to serving the poor and needy. Our global community of employees, trained volunteers and partner organizations brings hope and changes lives by providing humanitarian aid on all six occupied continents. We educate, train and serve through disease control, medical training and care, community outreach, adoption and orphanage assistance, development assistance and disaster relief.
Why We Serve
By our demonstration of God's love through our work, we seek to help people overcome poverty and suffering and experience life in all its fullness. As our teams work in needy areas of the world, people often ask, "Why did you come?" The answer never varies: We come because the Scriptures call us to love and serve the poor and needy throughout the world as Jesus did.
Who We Serve
HOPE worldwide brings hope and changes the lives of more than 1 million of the world's most poor, sick and suffering each year. We help all people, regardless of their religious beliefs, gender, race, or ethnic background.
How We Serve
HOPE worldwide fights poverty on the front lines. We bring desperately needed assistance to hurting people around the world. Our community-based programs include disaster relief, post-emergency rehabilitation and recovery, and long-term poverty-fighting projects. Working closely with the communities we serve, we develop innovative and lasting solutions to meet their needs.
Centers of HOPE worldwide
Recognizing the diversity of the communities in which we work, we draw on Best Practices developed around the world in areas such as health, education, and economic development to fit the specific needs of each individual community we serve.
