What We Do
Since 2004 Hope Through Healing Hands has invested more than $3.5 million in charities in both the United States and abroad. These investments have been in support of infrastructure, sustainable health development, education, healthcare, and emergency relief. This assistance has primarily focused on HIV/AIDS, but HTHH has also contributed to projects ranging from Hurricane Katrina relief to health education in Africa. See Our Beneficiaries page.
Unlike grant making organizations, we primarily direct programs and campaigns that fulfill our mission to provide sustainable healthcare for the world's poorest.
We sponsor young health professionals, including students, residents, and fellows, to participate in our Frist Global Health Leaders program to travel to underserved areas around the world to provide health care to communities and clinical settings. The students spend up to a semester focusing on service to those in need and training community health workers.
With over 70 nonprofit organizations, universities, and churches, we proudly lead the Tennessee Global Health Coalition (TGHC), a robust networking system for better efficiency of programs through partnerships and support. We sponsor bi-annual meetings to provide a deliberate social space for these global health leaders in our community to build relationships with one another.
We also direct Faith-based Coalitions to demonstrate a breadth of support from across the nation for issues such as international family planning, nutrition, and AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. This work comprises building relationships with faith leaders, providing solid education on global health issues, and activating leaders for advocacy at strategic moments in the political year.
