About Us

Hope In Action is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, humanitarian organization based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Essential donated products including shelf-stable food, vitamins, medicine, clothing and shelter assist at-risk people in the U.S. and around the world. Cash donations help initiate sustainable nutritional and income-generating projects at schools and orphanages.

How We Operate

Essential items are provided on a short-term basis to people devastated by famine, drought, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes, earthquakes, mudslides, war and financial lack. Hope In Action works with other non-profit organizations to optimize organizational efficiencies and utilize strategic contacts in the distribution phase. The entire relief process is managed to assure that every item gets to the people needing assistance, and that there is total compliance with all donor requirements.

Underlying causes of food scarcity and insufficient nutrition are addressed by providing schools and orphanages with vegetable seeds, plants and innovative gardening techniques. Sustainable gardens produce food, seed for sharing and help children develop important work skills. Hope In Action also helps qualifying orphanges acquire items needed to generate sustainable operating income.

A key component in helping people achieve their full potential is instilling a spark of hope that current challenges are subject to change, and nurturing confidence that small consistent steps will lead to success.


Efficient operations hold internal costs to a minimum so resources can be focused upon helping people.

  • People needing assistance receive over 99% of total HIA revenue
  • less than 1% of total revenue is used internally
