Vision & Mission

HOPE worldwide mandela picVision

HOPE worldwide's vision is to bring hope and change the lives of the world's most poor, sick and suffering.



HOPE worldwide is an international charity that changes lives by harnessing the compassion and commitment of dedicated staff and volunteers to deliver sustainable, high-impact, community-based services to the poor and needy.



HOPE worldwide was founded in response to the Scriptures, which call us to have the heart of Jesus by serving the poor and needy throughout the world. We began in 1991 with three small local programs. Today HOPE worldwide operates on every inhabited continent, serving more than two million people annually. 



We are proud of our history of collaboration. Our valued relationship with the International Churches of Christ dates from our founding, and our global network has grown to include countless individuals and organizations who are our valued partners in the fight against poverty.
