The mission of the HOPE program is to work with charity organizations in local communities to further whatever activities or efforts they are involved in. Troy wanted an organization that would directly support the outstanding work of people already embedded in such places. The program has attained a few notable achievements.
One of the first projects undertaken by HOPE was the rebuilding of homes in storm-ravaged New Orleans. Volunteers from USHEALTH worked alongside the Phoenix of New Orleans organization to raze and restore homes for people left homeless by the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. Through the HOPE program, USHEALTH dedicated hundreds of man-hours to helping poor and destitute people get on their feet.
In 2011, company executives raised thousands of dollars for The Crisis Charity, a phoenix-based children’s shelter. New shoes, clothes, and baby formula were among the many things purchased with these funds. The following year, company leaders returned to Phoenix and gave HOPEkids, a charity for children with cancer and other serious illnesses, a check for $25,000. In 2013, the company gave a check for $45,000 to a new chapter of HOPEkids that opened in North Texas, near the headquarters of the company. Read more on Crunchbase about Troy McQuagge Son
