News from The Hope Alliance:

The Hope Alliance partners with People's Health Clinic

The Hope Alliance (THA) partners with People's Health Clinic in Park City, Utah to provide basic eye exams and prescription eyeglasses to the uninsured adults of Summit County. Believe it or not, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of local residents with health-related problems negatively affecting the eyes and who are unable to access eye care that could save their vision. With this incredible collaboration between The Hope Alliance and People's Health, a huge need within our own community was met with the generous grant from the Park City Sunrise Rotary. This grant enables The Hope Alliance to purchase prescription eyeglasses for 40-50 people who are unable to afford them otherwise. With this capability, the visual acuity of numerous local residents will be improved, thus improving their lives.

The Hope Alliance hosted their second vision clinic at People's Health Clinic in Park City, Utah on Wednesday, May 20. They were able to serve 12 Summit County residents who, without the support of THA and the People's Health Clinic, do not have access to prescription glasses or eye care.

Thank you to everyone who made this clinic possible and we look forward to many more local vision clinics. If you are interested in volunteering with The Hope Alliance locally or internationally, please email us at thehopealliance.org

Thank You Melissa

 

Thank You Melissa !

The Hope Alliance (THA) Board of Trustees would like to offer our heartfelt appreciation to Melissa Caffey for her service, compassion and leadership as she retires from THA and 30 years in the nonprofit sector this week. Melissa worked tirelessly for the last four years to help The Hope Alliance provide a better future for tens of thousands of people in the developing world, coordinating more than 40 projects and expeditions in 8 countries and returning THA headquarters back to its roots in Park City. According to THA Board Chairman Glenn Artist, “Melissa will be greatly missed and we wish her the very best in her new future endeavors.”

After an extensive search, the Board is pleased to welcome Angela Wright as the new Executive Director. Angela has an MBA from the University of Utah and will soon join the THA team after 6 years as a Regional Director of the YMCAs in Salt Lake and Weber Counties.

Chimaltenango, Guatemala
Our 17 volunteers just returned from Chimaltenango, Guatemala and with the help of the local Lions Club and many more, they were able to serve over 1,800 people in 4 1/2 days with screenings and eyeglasses. We thank you for your huge humanitarian hearts serving people in critical need. Without your tireless efforts none of this would be possible.
