The Have Faith Haiti Mission & Orphanage is a special place of love and caring, dedicated to the safety, education, health and spiritual development of Haiti’s impoverished children and orphans. The Mission was founded in the 1980’s as The Caring and Sharing Mission. Since then, it has raised and cared for hundreds of children, some of whom now work there caring for the next generation.

Following the devastating earthquake of January, 2010, the mission fell upon hard times, and later that year, operations were taken over by author Mitch Albom and his A Hole In The Roof Foundation, and the name changed to Have Faith Haiti Mission, inspired partly by Albom’s book “Have a Little Faith.”

One Life Touches Another

a mini-documentary

The goal of the mission is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for Haitian children who do not have one. Children are cared for medically, nutritionally, educationally and spiritually. They are taught in both French and English, with a goal of achieving a college or vocational degree. Christian prayer and guidelines are a part of their daily life, as is a sense of giving back to the mission and their community through work and responsibility.


Thank you for interest in the Have Faith Haiti Mission.

I have been blessed to see much of the world; nowhere have I seen greater despair – or greater hope – than in Haiti. For relatively little money, we truly can save children. One life touches another and affects it indelibly. I have written that. I believe that. And this mission is proof of it. Bless you for your help.

— Mitch Albom

Finding Chika: A Little Girl, an Earthquake, and the Making of a Family

“Unadorned, heartwarming…the takeaway from this simple, moving memoir is that love has no boundaries and should not be hindered by ethnicity, religion, education, or money. A highly expressive, tender story about how ‘families are like pieces of art, they can be made from many materials.’”
— Kirkus
