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.  Hope Force responded immediately after the earthquake, and remains with long-term rebuilding efforts near the epicenter where 90% of people lost their homes.

Closer to home, 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 has taken years to recover.

Hope Force Reservists have responded to floods in the Midwest, tornadoes in the South, wildfires in the West and severe storms in the South. HFI Teams also responded to the Great Tsunami, the Haiti earthquake and the 2011 Joplin tornadoes. HFI responded to the 2015 Nepal earthquake in the immediate aftermath with medical teams who trekked up mountains to wounded villagers who had not yet received care -- and continues to return with construction and medical efforts in the country.  Hope Force endeavors to become a leading volunteer response force, bringing hope to those affected by crisis or disaster.
