Who Is Hands Helping Haiti?

Hands Helping Haiti is a non-profit organization developed by Illinois families who have a heart for Haiti's children and a vision to educate them.  We believe the best way to break the cycle of poverty in Haiti is through education.  Through educating Haiti's children, we hope to provide opportunities and skills to those who have no other hope.

"I am only one, but still I am one.  I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I can not do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." ~Edward Everett Hale

Our focus is to partner with people in our American neighborhoods and communities to educate as many children as possible in Haiti.  Breaking the cycle of poverty involves more than simply providing basic necessities.  Children need education and opportunities to learn skills to lead productive, sustainable lives.

Our Mission Statement
Hands Helping Haiti is dedicated to showing God's love to the Haitian people by caring for their spiritual and physical needs through ongoing health care, and empowering their minds through education in an effort to break the cycle of poverty and free them to a richer life.

Love Is...
Love is giving
for the world's needs.
Love is sharing
as the Spirit leads.
Love is caring
when the world cries.
Love is compassion
with Christ-like eyes.
