Haiti Children’s Home was founded in 1984 to care for ill and malnourished children in Haiti. Over the years, HCH has seen hundreds of children come through our doors, some to be cared for until they are matched with an adoptive family, and others until they are strong and healthy enough to return to their Haitian families.
The goal of Haiti Children’s Home is to reach out and care for the people in our community with medical care, food, education, support, and the love of Jesus.
Meet the Staff: Meet the staff of HCH. We have 44 full and part-time paid Haitian staff. There are also 6 North Americans who provide their own funding. The day-to-day running of HCH is accomplished through full-time North American staff who work closely with Haitian nationals to provide well-rounded care for the children. Meet our Staff here.
About Haiti: Haitian children grow up in a society plagued by political unrest, fears, superstitions, witchcraft, illiteracy, and poverty. Yet despite the obstacles which the Haitian people face, they maintain a sense of dignity and pride which is often amazing and inspiring to foreigners who come to visit Haiti.

Volunteers: HCH is also blessed to have various volunteers that come each year to love on kids, facilitate building maintenance projects, encourage our staff, and just step in to do whatever needs to be done. Read more about Volunteering here.
Adoptions: HCH is licensed to facilitate adoptions in Haiti, and our children are matched with forever families in Canada and the United States. HCH is accepting files for new adoptive families. Read more about Adoptions here.
