has been with Haiti Mama, an organization that works to reunite families in Haiti through community based social work, since the very beginning. Gregory was looking for an internship when he was introduced to Tausha Pearson, a social worker and the founder of Haiti Mama. He became one of Haiti Mama's founding social workers and was a part of the first 10 family reunifications that Haiti Mama made. Gregory found himself employed through Haiti Mama as a social worker, he had high hopes for what Haiti Mama could do for families in his country and he was proud to be a part of it. Three years ago Gregory came to work not acting his usual self but rather as though something was overwhelming his mind. Then soon after, he seemed to have disappeared. From that day on, whenever Gregory's colleagues were walking the streets they searched for him but to no avail. In October 2017, Gregory found his way back to Haiti Mama. He was desperate for a safe place, for support, for love. Haiti Mama welcomed him into their arms and began providing him the services he needs. He has since been diagnosed with Schizophrenia and is working towards learning to live and cope with this new way of life. A big part of his new life is safe housing.
For Gregory Haiti Mama needs a total of $1,250:
$700 for one year of rent.
$550 house supplies (bed, stove, kitchenware, ect.)
