ABOUT US
Only Hope Foundation's mission is to provide service, medical education and medical care to underserved populations both domestically and abroad.

Projects include women's health initiatives, immunizations, clinics for rural communities, healthcare education, and care for orphans. Our expeditions are designed to provide meaningful service to those in need while helping students gain hands-on patient care and physician shadowing experience.

Our Foundation was formed in 2012 and has organized various service missions to underserved populations in South America.  We are a non-profit organization with bases in Salt Lake City - Utah, Miami - Florida, and La Paz - Bolivia.
