Lifting Up Haiti is a non-profit 501c3 organization located in Bellingham, WA. Our real heart lies in Haiti and with the Haitian people. We were formed in September 2010 and are comprised of a small board of committed caring, passionate people who have all had transforming experiences in Haiti.
Our current work is centered around a cooperative project with a small orphanage in Williamson, Haiti, located about an hour North of Port au Prince, close to the coastline. It is an extremely impoverished community, even by Haitian standards. Our center is called Lifting Up Haiti. We have 22 children at the orphanage. Currently we care for 14 boys and 8 girls ages 3-13. We are hoping for future expansion and we are personally aware of many in need.
We are comprised of a US and Haitian board of directors. We have many faithful Haitian volunteers who support services at the orphanage. It is their orphanage not ours. They have ministered in this community providing outreach since 2008 and they formed the orphanage this fall. We have merely come along side of them to encourage them and empower them. Together, we are excited for the future and the goal of building a “New Vision” for the children of Haiti!
