Board of Directors & Volunteer Medical Practitioners/Professionals

In 2022, Hope Within was able to provide 1700 medical visits, 426 counseling visits and 288 dental visits to our uninsured, underserved neighbors.  Each one of these numbers represents a life that was impacted for the better due to the fact each person mentioned here is aligned with the mission of Hope Within and views their service as a tangible demonstration of the love of Jesus Christ.  We acknowledge that the gift of time is priceless and more precious than gold, as once it is spent, it can never be regained.
