Who We Are
OHOP is dedicated to serving our veterans
The Open Hands Outreach Program pledges to leave no veteran behind. American soldiers continue to put their lives on the fence for our freedom, our peace and our happiness. In the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. And off the battlefield, OHOP provides local veterans and their families of Pinal County, and the surrounding community, reintegration services to improve their quality of life by assisting them in transitioning back into the community.
The open hand image in our logo is used to offer reassurance, encourage truth, inspire honesty, and reflect openness. And we couldn’t think of a better symbol to represent our aspiration to support our veterans in multiple ways and through multiple hands
Personal Sense of One’s Responsibility and Sacred Duty
Open Hands Outreach Program (OHOP) was inspired by the life and death of Sergeant and author Will Higginbotham III. He was deployed in Afghanistan where he shortly thereafter wrote his book called, “Chaos of War, Balance of Life.” He lost his life during his last deployment to Afghanistan. His grandmother was greatly involved in the founding of OHOP. Sergeant Higginbotham’s story continues to inspire us to remember the service members who have lost their lives in duty.
Serving Those Who Served Our Country
Open Hands Outreach distributes food boxes one time a month to each recipient family. The new hours are the 2nd & 4th Friday of each month from 10-2 pm. We are currently looking for volunteers with food pantry experience. Duties include: help receive, sort, stock, pack and distribute food boxes through our Food Pantry program.
