About Us

Welcome to HOPE Panhandle, Inc.

We're a nonprofit organization with recognized IRS tax-exempt status, formed by community leaders and local business people in the aftermath of the storm in order to respond to widespread area needs. Upon seeing the devastation left behind by Hurricane Michael, we immediately organized and assembled a group of dedicated volunteers to help offer hurricane relief to the residents of the Florida Panhandle. Together we serve those who have lost so much and are in desperate need of loving support and immediate relief. HOPE Panhandle, Inc. has established a bustling Community Relief Hub in Bay County where we have served over 150,000 hot meals and have provided much needed supplies.

Generous Donors

Your generous donations will go toward our continued efforts by providing essential supply items to local residents in the devastated areas. In addition, HOPE Panhandle, Inc. is helping families remove fallen trees and install tarps to patch damaged roofs. The immediate focus is Relief, then the campaign will switch its strategic focus toward Rebuilding and Revitalization.
