About our Conversation

Why is our community still resistant to seeking and accessing the health resources available to them? 

This is a question that, after 20 years serving the African-Caribbean  community The Olive Branch of Hope is still asking.  We believe the answer may lie in not listening to a community misunderstood and underserved. 

The Olive Branch of Hope not only provides support services but intends to empower and help dispel the myths that still exist by tapping into the expertise of our Health Care Provider’s evidence based research and building a strong bridge of hope towards a future of equality in heath care.
