About Us

Hands of Hope Northwest's mission is to improve the quality of life for people with health or mobility issues by redistributing donated medical equipment and supplies to individuals and partnering organizations, domestically and internationally.

To that end, we collect medical equipment and supplies that hospitals and individuals no longer need and make them available to developing countries, other nonprofit organizations, and individuals right here in our area.

Hands of Hope NW has served 69 countries since 1992. That means we've sent 110 large containers and at least 80 small shipments filled with medical equipment and supplies to impoverished communities in developing nations. We've equipped over 200 medical mission trips with medical supplies, helping medical professionals give humanitarian assistance where it's needed most.

Locally, we've given donated product to over 100 nonprofit clinics, schools, and homeless shelters, facilitating the care and education they provide. And we've loaned equipment, such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, and walkers, to thousands of area residents.
