Help Haiti Now is a non-profit 501c3 organization established in 2005 to support education and provide basic necessities in remote areas of Haiti.
When the earthquake devastated Port Au Prince on Jan. 12, 2010, Help Haiti Now was organized with a Haitian team prepared to respond. Now, one year later, we are still committed to several relief efforts.

CHILDREN'S HOME
The need for shelter for children became an immediate priority. Help Haiti Now rented a large house in Feb. 2010 near Montrouis, Haiti - which is now home for 16 children and provides part-time work for six adults. Your donations have assisted in providing a stable environment for these homeless children. They are grateful to have beds and shelter, food twice or more daily, clean water, and most of all tuition, uniforms and books for school.

SHELTER CAMP
Working with other relief groups, Help Haiti Now relocated over 300 people from Port Au Prince to Montrouis after the earthquake. Initially, two schools were made into emergency shelters. Now these families, mostly women and children, are living in a tent camp on the beach in Montrouis. They have no place else to go and are dependent on Help Haiti Now for money to buy food and emergency medical care.
We look to our donors with gratitude so that support for these refugees continues.
