Learn About How Hope Sports Started and Why Our Work Is So Important
What We Do
Hope Sports arranges 3-5 day service trips to Mexico, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic for active and retired athletes, teams, their coaches
Our trips provide meaningful experiences that are profound and worthwhile.
Building a home is a simple process, but the result spreads hope throughout an entire community. Plus by uniting with other athletes to serve these impoverished families, athletes join together for a cause greater than themselves. We believe that it’s important to develop a purpose beyond our sporting achievements. By connecting to greater meaning, athletes can thrive in their sport and in every aspect of their lives.
Hope Sports partners with Homes of Hope to select the recipient families and build the homes. Over the last 27 years, Homes of Hope has built and donated 6,000 homes in 20 countries. Recipient families are selected based on
