Homes For Hope

Help us provide necessary supplies and housing.

God’s intention for humanity is community.

The most basic necessary form of community is family, which is why our Family Hope program strives to reunify separated children with their families. While many children in Haiti live in orphanages our desire is that it would be a temporary and last resort. Children raised in a loving, supportive family have better outcomes than those raised in institutions. Family reunification initiates systemic changes in the orphan cycle from the bottom up.

Through our Family Hope Program we strive to build healthy relationships between the children and their family members, arrange home visits, and whenever possible work towards reunification. If reunification is a an option, we identify the specific needs of the family and walk alongside them, empowering them towards the independent care of their children.

Haiti remains the poorest country in the Americas and one of the poorest in the world. According to the latest household survey, more than 6 million out of 10.4 million (59%) Haitians live under the national poverty line of US $2.41 per day and over 2.5 million (24%) live under the national extreme poverty line of US $1.23 per day. – The World Bank

We give A Hand Up, Not Hand Outs

Solar Powered

There is no shortage of sun in Haiti, which is why our entire Children’s Home runs on solar power. The Hopestart compound in Jeremie depends on a great solar system consisting of 50 panels and a bank of batteries where we store the energy produced by the solar panels, thus having reliable electricity on a 24/7 basis.

Sustainable Agriculture

The ingredient that is most sorely lacking in the Haitian diet is protein. The lack of this essential component of a healthy diet severely hampers the intellectual development and growth of Haitian children. On the other hand, the cost of meat and eggs, the richest sources of protein, is beyond what many orphanages or other child care institutions in Haiti can afford. To make protein – meat and eggs – available in our childcare operations, we have taken up chicken farming.

95% of all funds go straight to Haiti

Over 95% of all money raised goes directly to Haiti – not stateside on advertising, salaries or admin costs. HopeStart International’s investments in Haiti, outside of its primary care programs, include investments in Haiti’s infrastructure, manufacturing and labor needs.
