In 2016 Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti leaving a path of destruction. Many of the simple tin, stick and mud structures that many families in the Saint Rock region call home were damaged or destroyed. Community leaders came together and did a comprehensive assessment of need in the community and foundation donors stepped forward. To date, several homes have been rebuilt or rehabilitated bringing basic comfort to families in the community.
This housing program continues today. Numerous homes have been constructed with the help of US volunteers who work alongside our Haitian skilled laborers. A simple but safe structure can be built within several days but provides years of dignity to a family in need.
