50 Years in Public Health
On June 15, 1970, Health Outreach Partners began as a small, direct service program working with five local communities along the East Coast and by the summer of 1973 that number had grown to 15 communities. At that time, HOP outreach staff was stationed in small, poor, rural areas where oftentimes clinics did not yet exist. HOP continued expanding its staff to meet the increasing demands from numerous communities along the Eastern seaboard until January 2001, when its service area encompassed 17 states.
In 2001, HOP leveraged its 30 years of direct service experience and leadership in health outreach and prevention strategies into a training and technical assistance role serving Migrant and Community Health Centers nationwide.
Now, with nearly 50 years of experience in health outreach, HOP is excited to announce a new scope and mission To build strong, effective, and sustainable grassroots health models by partnering with local community-based organizations across the country in order to improve the quality of life of low-income, vulnerable, and underserved populations.
