Who We Are
As a leading non-profit organization dedicated to disaster response, HFI is comprised of individuals who are committed to utilizing their expertise to inspire, equip and mobilize thousands of trained volunteers into areas of crisis around the world. Hope Force International prioritizes disaster response initiatives that are undertaken with like-minded companies and agencies. Collaborative relationships with organizations and businesses such as World Relief, Smith & Nephew and Medical Teams International (MTI) provide a platform for maximum effectiveness. HFI has been a national partner with The Salvation Army since 2005 with a focus on training and volunteer deployment.
HFI specializes in training volunteers in disaster response so they are prepared and allowed to respond, often in restricted areas, when disaster strikes. People are seldom adequately prepared to meaningfully come alongside others who are suffering. HFI provides a pathway of service for caring individuals, allowing them to become willing, capable responders.
Three-day Reservist training focuses on the grief and trauma cycle, personal wholeness and healthy team dynamics. Hope Force stresses the importance of the relational, emotional and spiritual aspects of effectively meeting the needs of those who have suffered loss. Over 1,300 HFI Reservists stand ready to deploy to crisis areas.
