In the summer of 2004, the members of Christian music group, Audio Adrenaline, founded the Hands and Feet Project. The Project, inspired by fan reaction to the song “Hands and Feet”, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing family-style, residential care for children in crisis.
The organization broke ground on their first Children’s Village in Cyvadier, a small town on the Southern coast of Haiti, and began their journey of serving the forgotten children of the impoverished Caribbean nation. Now, The Hands and Feet Project has grown to include multiple locations across the southern peninsula that provide family style care for children in need.
Moving forward, Hands and Feet continues to fight against the orphan crisis by preserving families first, providing families when necessary, and reunifying families when appropriate. With a newly opened daycare for mothers in crisis, and robust job creation initiatives, Hands and Feet brings sustainable solutions to help families stay together and thrive in their communities.
Our Christ-centered purpose is to provide family-style, residential care and sustainable solutions that fight against Haiti’s orphan crisis.
From our Children’s Villages in Haiti to our offices in the United States, we hold fast to Christ’s teachings and commandments. We strive to teach and exemplify Love, Honesty, Obedience, and Responsibility in the name of Christ.
Hands and Feet Project - What We Do
First, under the guidance of Haiti’s Child Social Services, we provide holistic, residential care for children in crisis by building and operating Children’s Villages with multiple family-style homes lead by Haitian House Mothers. By utilizing our resources, relationships, and our American and Haitian staff, we strive to create a circle of care around each child with the intent of giving every boy and girl the chance to reach their God-given potential.
Second, we will utilize our platform to help create sustainable and dignified jobs to push against the poverty-driven child abandonment and child slavery cycles. We believe the best orphan care strategy starts with a fight to keep families together.
