Our Work in Haiti

At Family Health Ministries, we pursue a dream of building healthy families, and healthy communities by developing long-term relationships with people and communities’ in need’.

Children’s Programs

After the original Saint Antoine school was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake, Family Health Ministries raised $100,000 to rebuild the school. With added financial help from Partners in Progress, Heart to Heart International, and Fonkoze, the new Saint Antoine School building welcomed children back to school in October 2013.

Women’s Programs

Family Health Ministries work in women’s health is based on the priorities of the communities we serve and focuses on cervical cancer prevention and safe motherhood programs.

Family Programs

The Leogane Family Health Center is a preventative and acute healthcare complex serving those without access to health services. The center will provide healthcare, education, and research programs.

Get Involved

The greatest benefits people gain from volunteering is the satisfaction of incorporating service into their lives and making a difference in their community and country. The intangible benefits alone—such as pride, satisfaction, and accomplishment—are worthwhile reasons to serve. When we share our time and talents, we solve problems, strengthen communities, improve lives, connect to others, and transform our lives and the lives of others.

Family Health Ministries appreciates the time, talents, and support of all our volunteers. Whatever your skill set or interest, we have a volunteer opportunity for you. We want you to work where you work best!
