"Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me." - Matthew 18:5
Love and Grace Boys Home
Since 2009, thirty three boys have come to live at Love and Grace. Each one's story is heartbreaking. Our vision is to give each boy hope for the future and to see them mature into honest, caring, hard-working individuals.
The 2010 earthquake brought a lot of pain to Haiti, which made the need for Haitian ministries like Love and Grace even more necessary. Many of our boys came to us after that tragedy. Through these difficult times, our organization has allowed us to give the boys a loving home and a brighter future.
Our staff includes an administrator who oversees the operations of the home, an assistant administrator who works alongside the administrator and oversees the operations once the administrator leaves for the day and lives at the home, a tutor who lives at the home, two live in nannies, an assistant nanny, a cook, two laundry ladies, a driver, yardman, and security at night.
Love and Grace Bridge Home
When the boys turn 18 years old, Haiti requires that they move out of the orphanage. For those who have no family to care for them, these young men would eventually end up on the streets. For Love and Grace Ministries this was not an option. We took a big leap of faith and rented another home. We moved three of our boys out of the Boys Home in 2015. This is our new Bridge Home which we rented in October 2019. The boys live on the first floor. The second floor houses our director and his family. It is also where our mission teams stay.
At the Bridge Home, the young men will continue with their education and attend a vocational school to learn a trade or attend college so they can become self-sufficient and are able to become productive young men. For those who have families, they will be able to help support them and move back home.
Each day at the Bridge Home is similar to their schedule at the Boys Home but it also includes a Saturday morning Bible study and playing on a soccer team club. At the Bridge Home they also learn how to cook, do laundry, and budget their allowance. We want to create a brighter tomorrow for Haiti by raising up this next generation of Haitian leaders today. Our staff at the Bridge Home includes a director and his wife who live and oversee all operations at the home, a cook, and two laundry persons.
