Connecting Vulnerable People and Services

Learn about our Tools

Helping those in need. Anywhere. Anytime.

Mission

HopeOneSource is a social impact program powered by Hope With Love, a 501(c)3 non-profit that leverages outreach technology for good. We aim to connect our most vulnerable neighbors to nearby and verified services they need with dignity, security, and ease.

How We Do It

We do this by assisting service providers with outreach technology that enables safe and efficient communication about their services with their existing participants, or the public they aim to serve. They also receive dynamic data insights to help with reporting and funding.

Our Beginnings

HopeOneSource first started in Haiti in 2010 with the goal to use widely accessible cell phones to connect local services and unmet needs with medical service providers after the major Haiti earthquake.

2015 to Present

In 2015, HopeOneSource founder Tim Underwood and his wife Allie went undercover to experience homelessness in DC for four days and three nights, where they identified a similar gap to Haiti with the need to simply and effectively connect vulnerable people to verified nearby services they need for rapid resolution. At the request of the DC government, Tim and others began to adapt it for different use cases. It has continuously expanded into a vast network of people and services. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Tim resigned from his federal job to advance this full-time.
