The Have Faith Haiti Mission is a special place of love and caring, dedicated to the safety, education, health and spiritual development of Haiti’s impoverished children and orphans.
Following the devastating earthquake of January 2010, the orphanage – then called The Caring and Sharing Mission – fell upon hard times and, later that year, its operations were taken over by author Mitch Albom and his A Hole in the Roof Foundation. The name was changed to Have Faith Haiti Mission, inspired partly by Albom’s best-selling book “Have a Little Faith.’’
Currently, 50 children live at the mission. Every student is taught in both French and English, with a goal of achieving at least a high-school diploma. Two Have Faith Haiti graduates are attending college in Michigan; another recently graduated from culinary school.
The Have Faith Haiti Mission exists on donations. All money raised goes strictly into the operation of the orphanage, from purchasing food to paying for schoolbooks.
