Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Relief

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.

I volunteer going to my own country San Salvador with together in hope and it was a wonderful experience. the organization provide the salvadorian community with medical health. Bringing general doctors, and Dentists and provide them not only with the medical check ups, but with medicines, that in a poor country like it is San Salvador, people can not afford to buy Medicines. I am very thankful with together in hope they really bring hope to my country.

I Volunteered and traveled to El Salvador in January of 2012 and found the people very loving, caring and prideful. Through Together in Hope and their people on the ground in San Salvador, our Team was able to Minister to the people with Medical & Dental patient services. I think all of us were Ministered by the people of Altos de Miraflores and my wife and I will continue to support Together in Hope in their Mission to feed children in Third World Countries. Grace and Peace, Dave Harris

I am very fortunate to be part of Together In Hope. In January 2012, I had the opportunity to help people that lack medical resources and attention in a small, impoverished community in El Salvador. Every member of our team was responsible for providing quality medical care and ensuring that each patient went home with a smile of satisfaction. I assisted Dr. Barnes, one of the doctors in our team. He used his medical experience to care for each patient and advised on the importance of preventive health care. Many patients called him "the angel of the mission" because he was always willing to help in every need. I remember a family of four that complained about not having money for reading glasses, they told us that they enjoyed reading the bible together, but that because of the inability to purchase eyeglasses they had stopped reading the bible to their kids. Dr. Barnes opened his personal bag and gave them his two pairs of reading glasses. The family was very happy and thankful; Dr. Barnes and I were very satisfied with everything that we did for others. I really hope to be part of many future experiences that emphasize on helping those who are less fortunate in this world. Thank YOU!

I had an amazing experience in El Salvador helping coach and interact with kids. We donated equipment but they gave us so much more in return! It was extremely humbling to see these kids that don't have a lot to give continue to give gifts and share their food with us. They looked up to us so much from the first day that we met them. The excitement was very apparent from both sides, it is definitely a trip I will never forget. It continues to motivate and effect my life today in a very positive way. This is a great organization that does lots of good for kids in various locations around the world. I only hope to continue contributing in any way that I can!

Lyndsey, We were so lucky to have you as part of our team for the community outreach program to El Salvador in March 2011. The children loved you guys and always ask for 'los pirates' now. You guys have made such a difference in the lives of these children and have given them memories that will last forever. We are so grateful to have you as a volunteer.
