Welcome to Outreach to Haiti!

Outreach to Haiti has been working in the Caribbean nation for over 35 years. We offer health care services, student sponsorships and other educational support, parish twinning, support of an orphanage, as well as a neighborhood nutrition 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.

Phase 1 Completed!

Thank you to our wonderful donors!

Phase 1 was officially completed in mid December! The initial focus was on completing the office space, allowing us to move our offices out of rented space in October and to stop paying rent.  Finishing on the rest of the building followed, and the final inspection occurred in December, with clinic operations moving in right after. 

While achieving this milestone was a long time coming, it is also a huge achievement. The success has been in spite of a presidential assasination with associated unrest, a pandemic, and occasional hurricanes. It was possible due to the perserverance and dedication of our Haitian partners in the building project:  UGC Construction, headed by Jean-Renet Carier, La Promesse Construction, headed by Leandre Mondestin, and our oversight/liaison firm UOC/Proche, headed by Stephan Destin, with project managers Rose-Pascale Durosier and Ruddy Narcisse. They have delivered a high quality building in very difficult circumstances. Thank you!

We are greatly excited to be all together in this one building, and to have this wonderful foundation for our ministry in Haiti.

We still need to raise money for Phase 2 of the building which will make the building more energy efficient (shading, solar energy, fans, etc.), add finishing touches (exterior painting, two small exterioir buildings, parking lot etc.), and replace our very old and worn out generator.

Of course, all of this was made possible by the generosity of the many people who donated the money to enable us to build this wonderful structure. Words can not adequately express our gratitude.

9th Annual Ride for Haiti!

The 2023 Ride Took Place the Week of September 25!

Our Outreach to Haiti team of riders once again rode 337 miles over 5 days. The bike ride was a "virtual trip" across Haiti, and we visited some of the parishes and schools in Connecticut that are twinned through Outreach to Haiti with parishes, orphanages, and schools in Haiti.

The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness and funds to support our mission in Haiti. Donations from this ride are being earmarked for our dental program and to support our educational program.

Thank you for keeping us in your prayers for a safe and successful ride, and thank you if you have already donated to the ride.

After reading this, you are probably thinking to yourself that you would love to join at least part of a future ride. You can find out more by contacting Tom Campbell at [email protected], or Dan O'Sullivan at [email protected]

So far, we raised over $17,000, bringing the total raised over the 9 bike rides to over $200,000!! If you have not yet donated -- it's not too late!

Fr. Matt and St. Mary's welcome James Michel

He received a warm welcome from Fr Matt Mason and the St Mary's parish, and used a personal anecdote to demonstrate the faith of the Haitian people before telling them about the work of Outreach. Our thanks to St Mary's for sharing his talk online! Hear his talk by clicking here
