Father’s Hope Director Kevin Mertz, of Milton, PA, founded the organization after being deeply moved during a visit to the Oasis de Amor orphanage while on his first mission trip to Choluteca, Honduras, in June 2011. Kevin has since returned to Honduras multiple times, and has also visited orphanages in the Dominican Republic. He works professionally as a staff writer with the Standard Journal newspaper in Milton. In addition to his volunteer activities with Father’s Hope and traveling on mission trips, Kevin enjoys following auto racing and spending time with the love of his life, Irma Isabel Maradiaga.
