Haiti Outreach is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose principal working base is in Pignon, Haiti, located in the central plateau, and has an executive office in Minnesota, USA. We collaborate with the people of Haiti to build and maintain community-initiated projects that advance their development.
Our goal is to share the responsibility of achieving our mission with both national and local governments, as well as community groups and citizens. We provide training, technical and management skills, and financial assistance to create sustainable projects. It is a hand-up, not a hand-out.
Haiti Outreach is a registered non-profit organization not only in the United Sates, but also with the Haitian government and is recognized as a private voluntary organization (PVO) with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The Nation of Haiti
Haiti is a small nation located in the Caribbean Sea on the western third of the island of Hispaniola just 600 miles off the coast of Florida. This tiny nation was once known for its lush, natural beauty, but today is one of the poorest countries in the world. Each and every day the people face the crippling effects of poverty, undrinkable water, high infant mortality, poor medical care, illiteracy and high unemployment. However, given the opportunity, the Haitian people will help themselves. Haiti Outreach is committed to providing that opportunity.
