Hope Force International is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the individuals and communities in the wake of natural disasters. Since its foundation in 2003, the organization has primarily served as a response to damage from hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes.
Throughout 2018, our country saw numerous hurricanes that devastated large areas of land. Hope Force International volunteers responded and continue to serve in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, Florence, and Michael. Teams are also being sent to aid areas in Mexico that have seen extensive flooding. In Haiti and Nepal earthquakes have left a great need for rebuilding efforts. Teams from Hope Force International continue to visit these countries to aid in new construction projects.
Hope Force International relies on committed individuals with expertise in building and construction to lead and train thousands of volunteers each year to effectively respond to crisis around the world. In the midst of unfortunate circumstances, volunteers are also trained to be mindful of the hardship faced by those affected by disaster and are encouraged to share the message and hope of Christ. Extending their reach even farther than their own organization, Hope Force International has been a national partner of the Salvation Army sharing volunteers for assistance in key deployment responses.
Joey Stoltzfus is the Disaster Services Manager for Hope Force International. When asked about the purpose and mission of the organization, he explained, “When disaster strikes, something of God’s divine deposit within us longs to come alongside those so deeply impacted; to let them know that they are not alone or forgotten. Our response comes from our own experiences of being comforted in difficult times. The challenge during a disaster is that we often don’t know how to respond, and the pathway to serve is unclear. This is where Hope Force International fills the gap by providing a pathway.”
Stoll Industries provides a monthly sponsorship to Hope Force International. The team at Stoll believes that there is great value in being part of enabling teams to provide the care and aid needed across the nation and the world.
“I deeply appreciate the Stoll family and their investment through our family and into the lives of those so deeply impacted by disaster.” – Joey Stoltzfus
