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.

Ride 2018

It's Started - and it's Over - but not too late to donate!

 

A small team from Outreach to Haiti completed a 5-day, 337-mile bike ride, touching five of the six New England states, on October 12, 2018, to raise awareness and funds to support the mission in Haiti.

You can see a day by day description of the ride by  clicking here.

The ride raised $16,500 this year.  In the four years of the ride, it has raised almost $70,000.

Capital Campaign Update

Demolition Completed

Demolition of the remainder of the building that was being used for offices started on November 30, 2017, and was completed before Christmas.  This removed all of the remnants of the building, and prepared the property for construction  Final design details are being worked out, and should be completed in April.  Construction should start soon thereafter.  Thanks to all who have helped us get to this point!  We will soon have a solid building from which to minister to the Haitian people.

The capital campaign has reached $590,000 out of a target of $450,000.  However, we found out late last year that the portion 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 will cover most of the cost of the new building, but will fall somewhat short, and will no longer allow us to do things like add solar power.  We continue to look at grants and additional donations to complete the building, cover replacement of the current, out-of-date and underpowered generator, and add solar power.
