Help us build a transitional home for teenage girls in Haiti
This home is being built for our older girls who are in the process of finishing their post-secondary education, but are not yet able to live on their own. Since the inception of our girls and boys homes, we have committed to allowing our girls or boys to stay in the orphanage and not send them away just because they reach the age of 18, as many orphanages do.
The Haitian Minister of Affairs has told Dr. Joel and Doris Jeune that as long as the older girls are living separately from the younger ones, the arrangement would be acceptable. To this end, one of our long time partners and Grace International Board Member has given us a memorial gift toward building this home, and ground-breaking for construction was celebrated March 22nd, 2013.
This new home, which is almost completed, will also free up space in the existing Girls Home for more orphan girls to be admitted. We are currently in need of volunteers to come to Haiti to help us complete this Transitional Home for orphan girls who have graduated from high school but not ready to live independently. Scheduling for these trips is very flexible and we are most eager to receive teams focused on one activity or another throughout the year. Teams are housed either on site in Grace Missionary guest house or at the Auberge du Quebec Hotel located off site from the main campus in Carrefour.
If you’re not able to come, please consider helping us financially.

Our mission is to follow the command of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poorest of the poor and oppressed, promoting human transformation by breaking the cycle of spiritual darkness, poverty, sickness, chronicle-dependency and ignorance, as we RESCUE, RELIEVE, RESTORE and EMPOWER.
