Love. Food. Shelter. Education.

The Have Faith Haiti Mission & Orphanage is a special place of love and caring in Port-au-Prince.

It was founded after the devastating 2010 earthquake by author Mitch Albom, who took over the operations of an existing orphanage that had fallen on hard times.

Since then, the mission has grown exponentially, and has raised, educated, supported and cared for more than 100 children, some of whom now work there caring for the next generation. New children from dire and impoverished circumstances are admitted every year, some as young as six months old.

How You Can Help



Mitch Albom writes about running an orphanage in impoverished Port-au-Prince, Haiti, his kids, their hardships, laughs and challenges, and the life lessons he’s learned there every day.


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.
