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.
Results: We spent a lot of time this year fundraising for our medical mission to El Salvador. This was the first medical mission ever to take place in this community. With only one doctor and one dentist, we were able to see and treat approximately 500 patients. Our Jessica's Table program has expanded to three new areas increasing the number of children benefiting from this program to 700 children. We are currently fundraising to purchase a piece of property in El Salvador to build a new school, medical clinic and community health center.
Target demographics: Marginalized squatter communities in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Approximately 700 children
Geographic areas served: The Philippines, El Salvador, Ethiopia.
Programs: Jessica's Table- A feeding and educational support program serving over 700 children worldwide. Medical Programs-We bring medical teams from the United States throughout the year, to provide free health care to the communities we work in.

This organization is led by a dedicated visionary who is answering the call to empower people to rise above the oppression of poverty. My dear friend, Rev. Diane McGehee, knows that we are always stronger as a team. I have had the honor of supporting her effort as a prayer partner from the beginning. Under her guidance children in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia are able to learn with full bellies and necessary nutrition. Young adults achieve their dream of college through micro-loans assisting in small business start-ups. Most importantly, people reclaim their self-worth and dignity by knowing someone cares about them and believes they are a valued child of God.

TOGETHER IN HOPE is extending care to needy in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia through many ways. My church is collecting used eye glasses and personal dental & hygiene supplies to help with the medical mission in El Salvador. Founder Rev. Diane McGee is an amazing woman of God who has a passion for responding to those in poverty by building relationships and teaching them to be self-sufficient. Focusing on food programs, education and self-care, Together in Hope is making a difference by building co-operative efforts.

Together In Hope is a mission minded group that believes in helping people help themselves. They currently are assisting people in the Philippines in their recovery from a devastating hurricane (among other projects!). And by assisting I don't mean rebuilding their houses for them. Many in this particular community made their living by the sea, but the community lost all of its boats to the hurricane. Together In Hope is assisting the community in the start up of its own boat builders, and guiding the development of a cooperative to fund and manage those boats so that everyone can use them to recreate their livelihood. Soon the people of this small seaside community will be back in business and able to rebuild their lives. They did not need to be taught to fish - just given the opportunity to build a boat!

youth release is an amazing charity. The founders Niamh and Laura are an absolute inspiration. The have taken on wht seemed like an impossible task and have made unbelievable progress in helping to change the lives of so many in Dire Dawa who otherwise, might not even be here today. I get goosebumps when I think of the girls and the extraordinary work they have done, they are an absolute inspiration and have made me so aware of what is happening in the Ethiopia. They are so young and have already done so much, I can't imagine what great things I will be saying about the, in another 20years, what they could achieve in that time is awesome! Youth Release deserve all the help they can get as they are a genuine charity improving the lives of so many. I hope to go to Dire Dawa and do what I can to help this fantstic charity.

Lisa, Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our sister organization Youth Release. We are so excited to work with such a great organization.

Rating: 5 stars  

I became aware of Together In Hope through Diane McGehee. Diane was Associate Pastor of our church. She is a very caring person with great leadership skills who truly wants to help others in need whether it is through building a school for their education, teaching them job skills, providing them medical care or simply bringing them closer to Christ. While I have not yet been on a mission trip with her, I hope to go in 2013. Nonetheless, I have talked to others who have been on a Together In Hope mission trip and clearly the work they do is a wonderful experience knowing how they are helping others less fortunate.
