Welcome to Outreach to Haiti

Outreach to Haiti has been working in the Caribbean nation for over 30 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!

Hurricane Matthew Final Report

Outreach to Haiti received $90,000 from twinned parishes for their Haitian twins.  All of this money was immediately sent to the twins.  All fess by Outreach were waived.

Outreach also recieved $65,000 from other donors for Hurricane Matthew relief.  Again, 100% of this was sent to Haiti.  It has helped affected employees, patients at the clinic, and the five parishes twinned through Outreach that were most heavily hit by the Hurricane.

Bishop Cote Visits Haiti

Bishop Michael R Cote visited Haiti from January 30 to February 2.  While there, he celebrated mass with staff, neighbors, and program participants, performed a ground-breaking ceremony for the new Norwich Outreach Center, visited two Haitian twins (a parish and an orphanage),  met with three bishops, and more!

Capital Campaign Update

The capital campaign has reached $573,000 out of a target of $450,000.  However, we found out late last year that the protion of the building that had survived the earthquake, and we planned to continue to use, needed to be replaced as well.  We think the amount over the target we raised willl cover almost all the cost of the new building, but will no longer allow us to do things like add solar power.  We continue to look at grants to cover replacement of the current, out-of-date and underpowered generator, and adding solar power.
