Mission-Haiti is a non profit, 501c3 religious organization formed for the purpose of spreading the Gospel and caring for the poor in the country of Haiti. In order to accomplish this, we have child sponsorships of $50 a year, take teams of volunteers to spend a week or more in Haiti, have orphanages that accept kids in need of home, fight to rescue children out of slavery, have medical clinics for those who can afford it and host a youth program for teens.

There are several volunteer opportunities such as helping with mailings, sorting donations, office work, website work, volunteering a week or more in Haiti working with children or building.
