Mission: Together in Hope works with marginalized communities in El Salvador, the Philippines, and works in partnership with Irish organization Youth Release in Ethiopia. Our goal is to help these communities move with dignity towards sufficiency and abundance. Together in Hope’s goal is to empower the poor to improve their lives through relational partnering that is just and that honors their dignity.

We are currently fundraising to purchase a piece of property in El Salvador to build a new school, medical clinic and community health center.

We thank God for Together In Hope and all the people behind it for all the help they have extended specially to the children of Malis, Guiguinto in Bulacan a province in the Philippines.
Through their efforts, we are able to continue feeding the body, mind and spirits of the poor children in this community.
Their regular annual visit to the area is a big encouragement and inspiration to the people there because they feel God's love and care through them.

I have had the pleasure of working as the Medical Liaison with Together In Hope and Board member. TIH has raised money to assist with tsunami families to rebuild after devastating loss in 2013 in the Philippines. The educational and health screening that families in San Savador El Salvador was the first in the country in 2012 giving medical care resources to needed communities.

This is a great organization that works with the local community to give them a hand up not a hand out. In the last number of years I have seen communities thrive and become empowered through the various Together in Hope programs. I am excited to see the growth and development of TIH and its programs.

I have been working with Youth Release (Together in Hope sister organization in Ethiopia) since 2007. The people working for this organization have an amazing passion for helping disadvantaged youth living in Dire Dawa Ethiopia. I have seen the relationship they have with the children, and it is incredible to see the trust and confidence these children have in the people who work for this organization. Their work in Ethiopia is incredible and although they are a small, voluntary organization they have made a huge difference in the lives of many children living in poverty. When I heard Together in Hope wanted to partner with this organization, I was truly excited, as it is a wonderful opportunity for both organizations to learn from each other and to grow their programs. To have two great organizations working together will be amazing and I believe anything is possible... I am so grateful that I have been able to see the growth and development of Youth Release and I cannot wait to see whats in store...

I have been a volunteer with Together In Hope for over three years now working mostly in the Philippines, 5 trips, and one trip to El Salvador. It is a privilege to be part of this NPO. The mission of this organization is one of " empowerment". To help people move into a future where they overcome obstacles and better not only their own lives, but the live of the community.

Together In Hope is a strength in my every day life, knowing just one person, myself, together with you, can form an abundance of hope for others.

I was a recent volunteer on the medical mission trip to El Salvador on July 13th and had a fantastic experience. I previously went on a trip in 2011 to El Salvador with the Southwestern Soccer team, so to return and serve the community again was a blessing. To see the children again was heartwarming and a blast! I definitely learned some new soccer skills and Salvadorean Spanish playing with the kids! Yet again, Together in Hope was a phenomenal organization to work with, not only addressing the medical needs of the community, but making sure we as volunteers interacted with them and learned from each other at the same time. As a medical student, it was great to be able to use my clinical skills to help the community medically and see over 700 patients, but we also developed and taught health education activities to the children as well, hopefully promoting healthy lives throughout their entire lives and not just the short time we were able to be there. I think this is what really sets TIH apart from other organizations. They don't just "give" the community resources and establish dependence, but teach and grow the community in a way where it can become sustainable and unlimited in it's own progress with it's own resources and treasures. I would and I hope to return on another trip in the future.

My wife and I were so blessed to be part of the mission trip to El Salvador on July 13 organized by Together In Hope. It was our very first mission trip. While we expected that this experience would have an impact on us, we could never imagine the depth and intensity of that impact. Other members of our team have offered their reviews on this site, so I won't repeat some of the specific information related to the type of mission trip, who attended, etc. Rather, I want others to know about the passion of Together In Hope, its staff and its volunteers for serving, supporting, and empowering the people in Alta Mira Flores. Together In Hope has forged a wonderful relationship with this poor El Salvadorian community during the past few years; and we, as volunteers, have been invited to join in that relationship and be touched by that relationship. For me, after spending all of my time with the children during our week of service, it was difficult to leave; and those amazing children are now ever-present in my thoughts and in my prayers. Thanks to Together in Hope, I have a different perspective on life, on the many blessings that all of us take for granted at times, and on the responsibility that I, as a Christian, feel to help others in a much bigger way. I am eager and ready to return to El Salvador with Together in Hope!

I was one of the volunteer team that recently traveled to the community of Alta Mira Flores in El Salvador to provide health care, dental screening, exercise fun, and education to the children and families in the area. Together in Hope is a wonderful nonprofit that focuses on giving educational and nutritional support, plus offers access to health and dental care to communities in El Salvador, the Philippines, and Ethiopia. One of the great features of this organization is the longitudinal relationships built with these communities.

I was lucky enough to go to El Salvador with this group as a volunteer and medical student. I was amazed at how well organized everything on this trip was and it made my job even easier! We all had an amazing time and were able to help 700+ patients and children. I will continue to participate in this charity and can't wait until my next visit to El Salvador.

Accompanied a team of volunteers to San Salvador, El Salvador in support of ongoing work that this group does there. The team included individuals that provided medical care as well as educational activities in support of a school for disadvantaged children. This was my first mission experience and it left me desiring to do more.
