"Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me." - Matthew 18:5
Love and Grace Boys Home
Since 2009, over 35 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 godly, 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 lives at the home and works alongside the administrator and oversees the operations once the administrator leaves for the day. He does devotions each evening and an in depth bible study on Saturday mornings. He is tutors five of younger boys. The tutor also lives at the home. He tutors 13 of the boys each day when they get home from school. He also carries out other responsibilities in the home. There are two live in nannies, an assistant nanny, a cook, two laundry ladies, a driver, a yardsman who is there during the day to watch over the home, and a security guard at night.
The 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 and into the new Bridge Home.
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 is similar to their schedule a the boys home with nightly devotions and prayer and an in depth bible study on Saturday mornings. They learn to cook, do laundry, and budget their monthly allowance. We want to create a brighter tomorrow for Haiti by raising up this next generation of Haitian leaders today.
The staff includes a director and his family who live at the home and oversees all operations at the home. The director handles the finances and disperses the operating funds to the administrator of the boys home. There is a cook, and two laundry ladies.
