Have Faith HaitiDelmas 33, Port-au-prince
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. The Mission was founded in the 1980’s as The Caring and Sharing Mission. Since then, it has raised and cared for hundreds of children, some of whom now work there caring for the next generation.
Following the devastating earthquake of January, 2010, the mission fell upon hard times, and later that year, operations were taken over by author Mitch Albom and his A Hole In The Roof Foundation, and the name changed to Have Faith Haiti Mission, inspired partly by Albom’s book “Have a Little Faith.”
The goal of the mission is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for Haitian children who do not have one. Children are cared for medically, nutritionally, educationally and spiritually. They are taught in both French and English, with a goal of achieving at least a high school diploma. Christian prayer and guidelines are a part of their daily life, as is a sense of giving back to the mission though work and responsibility.
One Life Touches Another

We appreciate all of the kind calls and emails we have received regarding safety and wellbeing of our children during these catastrophic forms. The Mission was spared from any damage, and the children are doing well. We are using this as a learning opportunity, and turning our thoughts, prayers, and actions toward our U.S. and Caribbean neighbors.
Thank you for interest in the Have Faith Haiti Mission. I have been blessed to see much of the world; nowhere have I seen greater despair – or greater hope – than in Haiti. For relatively little money, we truly can save children. One life touches another and affects it indelibly. I have written that. I believe that. And this mission is proof of it. Bless you for your help.Mitch Albom
