UCF’s Task Force H.O.P.E. (Healing, Outreach, Partnership and Education) was established by President John Hitt to help shape and facilitate the UCF community’s long-term assistance in relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts after the Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti.

The task force is made up of students, faculty and staff members and administrators, many with personal ties, experience or expertise related to Haiti. Additionally, many of the volunteers have already assisted with local relief projects.
