What We Do
January 2010 ushered in an unparalleled awareness of the power of natural disasters to deliver devastation. An estimated 230,000 people lost their lives as a result of Haiti's magnitude 7 earthquake and provided a backdrop for shocking scenes of destruction. The landscape of an entire nation was changed Haiti and her people face a long and difficult road to recovery.
Even more recently, 1,000-year floods devastated the city of Nashville, Tennessee. Torrential rains brought 19 inches of rain to some areas over a two-day period. Stories abound of people barely escaping their flooded cars or homes and struggling with survivor's guilt because their neighbors did not make it. The damage to property and business was so vast that it will be years before the region fully recovers.
Hope Force Reservists have responded to floods in the Midwest, tornados in the South, wildfires in the West and severe storms in the South. HFI Teams also responded to the Asian Tsunami, the Haiti earthquake and the 2011 Joplin tornadoes. Hope Force endeavors to become a leading volunteer response force, bringing hope to those affected by crisis or disaster.

Please consider an individual gift or a monthly pledge and help us reach those who are suffering in the United States and around the world. Thank you for supporting this vital mission!
