Welcome to Outreach to Haiti

Outreach to Haiti has been working in the Caribbean nation for over 25 years. We offer health care services, student sponsorships and other educational support, parish twinning, support of two orphanages, as well as a neighborhood meal program for children.  For travelers to Haiti, we have a guest house, where you can stay short- or long-term. We also arrange immersion visits for traveling groups to learn about Haiti - its people, culture and land.

Watch a video about our programs!

 Ride To Rebuild - October 3-8, 2016

Last fall, a small team from the Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti completed a six-day, 339 mile bike ride, touching five of the six New England states. The ride was undertaken to raise awareness and funds in order to rebuild facilities in Haiti. The course included stops at all of the parishes/schools in Connecticut that are twinned with Haiti.  This year's ride will follow a similar route.
