Hands of Hope Northwest is a Christian, humanitarian, non-profit organization dedicated to helping people locally and globally by providing healthcare support. We collect medical equipment and supplies that hospitals and individuals no longer need and make them available locally to individuals and non-profits, and globally to field partners in developing countries where healthcare is inadequate to meet the needs.
Eula Tombaugh, a former NNU professor, had a heart for the disabled in her community. In 2004, she began storing durable medical equipment in her garage. Hands of Hope NW administered this Community Loan Program for Eula until 2006, when we started to distribute equipment from our distribution center at 1201 S. Powerline Road in Nampa. Eula passed away in 2017 and we celebrate her vision and achievement.
Today we have over 900 items in our Local Loan Program inventory.
