What we do
Restoring dignity with the hope of Christ
Short-term Mission Trips
SPECIAL NOTE: DUE TO CURRENT EXTREME LEVELS OF UNREST AND INSECURITY, MISSION TEAMS ARE UNAVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.
Our journey began with a mission trip. We saw things that broke our heart; things we couldn't "unsee". The love of Jesus compels us to act, to love, to be the hands and feet of Jesus. (Learn more)
On our trips, you will have the same opportunity to experience the struggle and the beauty of this tiny nation. (Application)
Becoming a partner with HH4H enables us to truly lend a “helping hand” to those who lack the strength to live a life of dignity on their own. The Haitian people are a proud and richly cultured people who have been ravaged by corrupt governments, natural disasters and deep poverty. HH4H exists to assist those in need that they may become the person God created them to be. In some cases, this may be a child who couldn’t afford to attend school or play for a soccer team or attend a trade school. For others, it may be a desire to attend ministry training. For some it is having respectable housing, some may need solar power to run a fan, lights and a small refrigerator. Others may need help with housing so they can raise their children while someone else desperately needs employment. These are the new objectives of HH4H. While we understand the reality of the need for orphan care, God has called us to begin to help in sustainable ways to deal with orphan prevention and family retention in a practical way!

Part of what has been missing from Haitian life is the ability to truly be hopeful. We believe Haitians want to be self-sufficient and sustain themselves. We believe lending a "helping hand" to help build, repair etc. Serving others through love is the gospel in action...just as Jesus did. Your involvemnt can truly change lives!!

Love Where You Live
Being called into a culture that is unfamiliar is a challenge. It requires faith, patience and most of all a love for its people. Learning about Haiti and it's past as we were introduced to the children was critical to forward progress. Here is a few things for your exploration from our journey.
