Helping Others Prepare for Emergencies

Hope Begins Here is an initiative which focuses on disaster Preparedness. Nationwide polls indicate that 7 out of 10 people are not prepared to survive three days following a natural disaster. Because we know it's a matter of "if, not when," Convoy of hope has developed a multi-faceted strategy that helps churches and individuals with preparedness and response education called H.O.P.E. Begins Here (Helping Other Prepare for Emergencies).

HBH strategies provide valuable tools and resources to help families and local churches build their own resillency to disaster and, as a result, strengthen their position from which to help others when disaster strikes.

Based on our concept of Prepare It Forward: Learn, Live, Lead, HBH advocates (1) learn what you need to do to help yourself and others, (2) live it out in your own life, home, and church, and (3) lead others through action in disaster preparedness and response.
