In 2008, when we founded HHA, we had no idea that God would lead us beyond just taking care of the immediate physical needs of those 35 children. We soon learned that He had a much bigger wholistic plan. In addition to providing housing and family to the orphaned and abandoned, the impact of this calling continues to spill beyond the gates of Kay Anj Village in various ways. Your support makes it possible to have the first primary school in the Dekle community, a growing church where the Gospel is infectious, vocational instruction for our youth so that they will become successful independent adults and a reunification program that empowers families with education and livelihood.

Our Mission at Legliz d’Espwa (Hope Church) is to share the Gospel with people by discipling followers of Jesus in their Christian walk and evangelizing members of our local community.
Our pastor, Henri Claude Paul and the church leadership team love the Lord and seek to please Him in all that they do. Pastor Henri Claude also resides at our Kay Anj Village with his family and is one of our house parents . Our pastor and church team are always available to pray and aim to walk alongside others who are in need.
We are committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ not only within the walls of Kay Anj Village, but also throughout our surrounding community. Our KAV family is instructed on how to implement Christian living throughout their everyday lives. Our church programming includes teaching our children at home and at our school through regular bible study. We also offer weekly small group meetings and several choirs for all church attendees. Our church leadership is continually planning outreach programs to meet the needs of those in our local community and to share the hope. A highlight of their time is gathering together and singing praises to God.
When people visit our village, they all remark on the joy they see and hear in interacting with our family! The source of that joy is simple-it comes from a deep and shared faith in Jesus. We pray that God will continue to use us to fulfill the Great Commission and build many disciples for Him.
At HHA, we believe all children deserve a home and family-poverty should never be an acceptable reason for a child to grow up in an orphanage. Loving family members are crucial for child development- providing not just life sustaining food, water, clothing and housing but also a sense of identity and cultural understanding. In Haiti, many children with families live in orphanages because their parents/relatives simply cannot provide for them since they themselves have no job, may be homeless and/or may be in an abusive situation. However, many would be able to provide for their children if they had basic support. They are in need of financial support for financing education as well as for basic needs such as providing food and clean water, and skills/jobs training.
Although HHA provides exceptional family home care in our safe and loving family homes, we believe that we are the “best” last resort for the orphaned/abandoned child in crisis. Children are placed with us by the Haitian Government (IBESR). We humbly do our best to provide love, compassion, a mental health plan, and other resources to provide the best family home care options for Haiti’s most vulnerable children. In addition to all that we offer at KAV, we provide an alternative to traditional institutional orphan care by preserving families. Our Family Preservation Program provides support to family members of some of our current and former KAV kids through tuition remuneration, monthly supplemental food, microfinance and job placement. Our social work professionals visit the children and families weekly to ensure the children are loved, well taken care of and supported academically.
Unfortunately, there are situations when children are not able to live with their biological families due to different forms of abuse and other severe realities that threaten their safety. In these cases, our attachment focused family homes offer stability and a happy environment for the children surrounded by love and they are given the opportunity for a brighter future.
