Our Vision

Gracious Hands is much more than an orphanage for the children of Haiti. It is much more than a place of learning or a place of refuge. In fact, Gracious Hands is all of these things working in unison to form a path to a brighter future for the children of today, so they can be the change of tomorrow.

My twenty-plus-years of experience working with orphanages has taught me a lot about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to operating and maintaining a children’s home in Haiti. This experience, coupled with an unwavering faith in God and the support of those closest to me, led to the creation of Gracious Hands.

Gracious Hands is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to restoring and creating joy in the lives of children in need. Children once forgotten and wounded are now housed in a loving, welcoming place where they receive schooling, medical care, clean water, three meals a day, baths, clothing and a place to sleep each night. 

Gracious Hands provides physical, spiritual, and emotional security to deserving children in need. This sense of security enables our children to develop their own personal and now attainable goals for the future. A child, whose sole aspiration used to be finding food for today, now has the ability to focus on the things they want to achieve tomorrow. By the time a child leaves our organization they will be equipped with the education and training needed for them to not only survive, but to THRIVE as self-sustaining professionals and the leaders of the future.

In order to accomplish these goals and to fulfill the Gracious Hands vision for a brighter Haiti we need all the help we can get. You may choose to help by sponsoring one of our children or their guardians with monthly donations. The good-hearted guardians are the people who dedicate their lives to caring for these children, and who are not always compensated for doing so. Without them there would be no Gracious Hands. 

You could also help by donating supplies, food, or your even personal time. Just spreading the word to one other person helps our cause. We believe you visited this page because you have a caring heart and are willing to help. These children need you and more people like you!
