Our Story

Over the last decade Haiti has gone through multiple natural disasters that have left thousands of children fatherless and/or motherless. These children urgently need basic things to survive like food, medical assistance, a place to live and someone to love them.

Our eyes could not ignore the sad images shown on TV. Our ears could not turn deaf to their cry for help. So our hearts became compelled to answer the calling and give hope back to these unfortunate children. That's how Gracious Hands was born.

Today, Gracious Hands is called "home" by 39 children. They feel safe, cared for and loved.

We invite you to help change the future of this children!

Our Mission

Gracious Hands is a 100% donor-funded orphanage in Gressier, Haiti.

We are focused on providing abandoned, abused, and neglected children food, shelter, medical attention, and support. Beyond the basic necessities, though, we aim to give these children a childhood.

Our Core Values of character, skills building, stability, and sustainability are at the center of our number one goal:

Teaching our children the skills they need to live, succeed, and change the community at large.
