    Serving the Underserved and Those Who Have Served

  • The Only Homeopathic Organization of its Kind


    HIP maintains the only free and/or low cost homeopathic organization of its kind in the US.


    We support the physical, cognitive and emotional health of veterans and other economically marginalized people.


    Our organization began as an institute. We adhere to our education-based roots by staffing a training platform for homeopaths, including workshops taught by experts from all over the world. The aim is to increase the reach of our work caring for the underserved.


    HIP is staffed ENTIRELY by volunteers!


    We treat homeless, underserved and veterans. We specialize in treatment of PTSD and trauma cases. Treatment is affordable for everyone and a sliding scale is available. No one is refused due to lack of funds.
