Hope2Haiti provides food, shelter, and foster sponsorship
for children who otherwise would go hungry and homeless.
Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. Despite living in material poverty, the people of Haiti have an enormous amount of endurance, hope and dignity, but they need help in this fight against extreme poverty.
Hope to Haiti was founded in 2007. Headquartered in Tallahassee Florida, we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization EIN Number: 27-1659233 Hope to Haiti has moved beyond the failed models of charity towards sustainable communities, economies, and lifestyles. We understand the need to inspire hope and create models that allows others to create their own hope for their futures. We know the greatest help we can give is to permit people to develop their own lives so that ultimately they are free of the need for outside support or intervention.
This shift has moved us to clean water, transportation, agriculture, housing, and micro-financing opportunities.
