Since our founding year, 1998, we have grown in our knowledge of some of the key contributors that put families at risk of separation; loss of caregiver, extreme poverty, disability and disease, mental illness and lack of education and resources. Taking this knowledge, we have grown and developed our family strengthening programs that address some of these main contributors in efforts to dramatically decrease the number of orphaned and abandoned children in our area. Our vision is a healthy Christian home and family for every Haitian child and this is our approach in serving vulnerable children and families:
Serving families at risk of separation by investing in family strengthening programs, with the goal to keep families together and to empower them towards a life of sustainable health and wellness.
When a separation of child from family occurs, we pursue family-based care and use temporary family-style residential care whenever needed, with the goal to bring a child into a healthy forever family.
To provide excellent physical, spiritual, emotional, educational and economic care for at-risk children and families in Haiti, empowering the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
How we pursue a healthy Christian home and family for every Haitian child.
We believe in strengthening Haitian families through education, resources, community and nutritional aid in order to keep a child in the care of their biological family. Doing what we can in order to set each family up for success and a life of health and wellness. Learn more.
Domestic Foster Care & Adoption
We invest in programs that pursue family-based care for orphaned children. Alongside our partner, Bethany Global, we have begun the investment in domestic foster care and adoption programming in Northern Haiti. Learn more.
When all other options have been exhausted, we pursue family for an orphaned child through international adoption. Learn more.
Countless studies show that nurturing family environments support healthy child growth and development. In the context of a family, children learn how to interact socially and to express feelings and thoughts by watching family members. Children who grow in a nurturing family environment have a great sense of identity and culture. Because of this, we pursue family in all we do. This unfolds itself in two ways: 1) We work diligently to strengthen Haitian families to remain together and 2) when separation does occur from child and family, we pursue family-based outcomes for the child.
