A Message from our Family:
To my adopted friends,
We are committed to your emotional health, physical safety and creating a world you can thrive in. Although we've come a long way, we have miles to go yet. If you need to stay at home there are many things that can still be done to participate in solidarity, such as educating yourself, posting on social media, signing petitions, donating, supporting black businesses, organizing your own peace marches, and having meaningful conversations with relatives. Each of these is a powerful protest!
The path won't be easy, but we will be empowered with knowledge and a sense of contentedness to change the world.

What is USFCH
United States Foundation for the Children of Haiti (USFCH) is a volunteer organization based in the United States which serves the Fondation Pour Les Enfants D'Haiti (FEH) under the leadership of Gladys Thomas. The FEH has worked since 1981 serving the children of Haiti through education, health and residence. The FEH has grown from one small orphanage to an organization that today operates one boarding school, a home for children with disabilities, three schools and a 50 bed general hospital. Today FEH has over 500 children attending our schools, and we employ over 200 Haitian Citizens. The partnership between the Haitian staff of the FEH and the USFCH has created a means to touch the lives of the citizens & the children of Haiti.
