Hope for the Children of Haiti is called by God to give Haitian children the opportunity to become well-rounded adults who are self-sufficient in Christ.
We fulfill our mission through the operations of our orphanage and school (Marion Austin Christian School) that serve in the impoverished neighborhood of Bolosse, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We began under the name of Bless the Children Inc. in 1989 and then changed our name to Hope for the Children of Haiti Inc. in 1996. Since that time, we have been raising 60 children who had been orphaned through the loss of one or more parents that was also coupled with extenuating life threatening situations, making them excellent candidates for outside help.
Many of the original 60 children began transitioning out of the orphanage either through adoption, graduation from school or simply moving into adulthood roles. Others have transitioned into our Post-Secondary Program which supports them in continued education or training. We currently have Haitian students studying in the U.S., Haiti and Cuba.
In September of 2013, we brought 47 children into the orphanage, ages 3-11 bringing the total number of children and young adults who are living at our location to 70.
Hope for the children of Haiti is a 501(c)3 organization that is governed by a U.S.-based Board of Directors and an Advisory Board. These boards serve us in a voluntary capacity and each member is dedicated to seeing our mission succeed. Members are actually involved in the operation of HFC, while also understanding our impact in partnering with the Haitians in order to transform their culture for Christ.
All of our efforts are unified under our STATEMENT OF FAITH which is our motivating and guiding principle.
