Troy McQuagge created the Helping Other People Everyday (HOPE) program in 2010. It was one of his first acts as President and CEO of USHEALTH Group. The purpose of the program was to re-align the message of the company—to become more focused on communities. The program has attained a number of concrete successes since its inception.
HOPE is much more than a philanthropic effort. It is a serious and sustained effort to partner with and support institutions and agencies that are embedded in local communities. Indeed, one of Hope’s greatest moments came in 2011 when HOPE executive provided funds for the Phoenix-based Crisis Charity to buy shoes, formula, and other needful things.
Troy and other corporate leaders joined forces with Phoenix of New Orleans to help people still reeling from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Through the HOPE program, a number of USHEALTH members re-build homes and took the lead in other restoration projects that gave storm survivors safe and secure housing.
In 2012, USHEALTH executives gave a $25,000 check to HOPEkids of Phoenix, Arizona. The charity supports children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. The plight and suffering of such children has become a special focus for company leaders. And through the HOPE program, they are able to do more than they ever have for them.
Troy McQuagge son refused to let the HOPE program become just another corporate PR ploy. From the moment he created the program, he took a personal interest in seeing it play a vital role in changing the direction and focus of USHEALTH. He has succeeded beyond all expectations. The HOPE program is increasingly defining the soul and spirit of the company. It has acted as a call-to-service for its employees, and individuals are beginning to take the initiative in setting up their own partnerships and affiliations in support of HOPE.
