Hope Soldiers is a grassroots organization, helping individuals and families overcome addiction, depression, and homelessness, through our HOPE Movement - Handing Out Purpose Everywhere. Our mission is to bring awareness, restore hope, and love people back to life.
A Hope Soldier is a person recovering from their battle with addiction and depression out loud, to give hope to others struggling silently. This also includes the families and loved ones recovering alongside us.
What We Do
We offer direct assistance to individuals and families struggling with addiction and depression, by bridging the gaps between support and services. We offer holistic and individualized peer counseling, helping individuals and families develop recovery plans and connecting them to resources that best align with their needs. Because there are so few facilities that offer treatment that address underlying issues, our trauma-informed leaders provide the missing support that is not available in traditional treatment centers. We have a heavily researched list of resources for those who are low income and/or have state insurance, as well as private insurance. We provide wraparound support from day one. For those who want resources only and aren’t interested in additional support, please click here.
Community Events / Outreach
Through our community events, we educate and inspire the community. We shift stigmas, and help people deprogram and discover their true identity. We help people turn pain into purpose. Through our outreach, we go into encampments and homeless communities to offer support and services.
Our HOPE Movement is active on social media. We strive to give hope to individuals and families, all over the world, who have been affected by addiction and depression. You can participate in the HOPE Movement by wearing our famous HOPE hoodies and other merchandise (see our merch page), sharing our uplifting messages on social media, and helping us carry out our mission to bring awareness, restore hope, and love people back to life.
Our local events draw in large crowds, and typically have audiences of over a thousand people. Past speakers have included former-NFL wide receiver Trent Shelton, and WA State Representative Lauren Davis (originator of Ricky’s Law). Our movement really started gaining momentum and support from all over the world after our outreach efforts were documented in the MTV film "Prescription for Change: Ending America's Opioid Crisis" (featuring Macklemore and former President Obama), and mentioned by h3h3 productions. Our work was also formally recognized, through an invitation to participate on a panel at the White House, with former Director Michael Boticelli, and Macklemore, as well as through an invitation to witness the signing of the 21st Century Cures Act, by former President Obama. Our efforts have also been captured many times by local and national media. To view all coverage, visit our media page.
