About us

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. Since we began our efforts in Haiti we have provided assistance through hurricanes, cholera, civil unrest and the devastating earthquake. We want to empower and enable Haitians to lift themselves out of poverty. Day after day, one life at a time, Hope to Haiti continues to provide hope and a better future for the people in Haiti and around the world. Hope to Haiti is reaching out to the people of Haiti and meeting them in their greatest need with encouragement, coaching and hope.
