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.

Capital Campaign Update

Construction started!

It has been a long road, but the construction phase on the new building has started.  The excavator, adn other equipment rolled onto the Christ Roi property on March 9, and started work on March 10.  Because of the difficulty of moving large vehicles on the narrow, crowded streets in Port-au-Prince, movement of equipment, supplies and removal of dirt has to occur on the weekend when there is less traffic.  Significant site preparatioin has already occurred.  We will keep you posted as the actual building starts to go up!

 

 

 

We found out late 2017 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  We continue to look at grants and additional donations to complete the building, cover replacement of the current, out-of-date and underpowered generator, and add solar power.
