The Healing Haiti Values.
Healing Haiti is a faith based non-profit 501(c)3 dedicated to serving the poor, the vulnerable and the disadvantaged.
We believe each one of us have been put on earth for a unique God given purpose and that we have all been blessed with spiritual gifts along with time, talent and treasures that can, if we let them, flow through us to others.
Healing Haiti seeks to use our gifts and those of our team members so that God may bless those we serve. Most of our team members have been born into the U.S., the richest country in the world, each with different amounts of time, talent and treasures. The thing that we seem to have the least of is time.
Haiti is a country with 70-80% unemployment... one of the poorest in the world. Haiti has been blessed with many who have much time and talent... but little treasure. We believe it would be a misappropriation of our gifts and those of our Haitian brothers and sisters to bring mission teams to Haiti to do what Haitians can do themselves while the unemployed watch us work.
Whenever possible, Healing Haiti hires Haitians to do the work that needs to be done. To date, all projects that God has done through Healing Haiti have been built by Haitians. We come along side them to support them with our time, talents and treasures.
Healing Haiti is committed to be an 'all volunteer organization' stateside. We have no paid staff in the U.S. Over the last 5 years we have had less than 4% admin cost allowing 96%+ of each donation to make it into the mission field.
We believe some day, each of us will stand before the Lord and have to account for every penny that comes into our mission and so we strive to be godly stewards of His many blessings.
These are the guiding values that we live by:
- Faith: We believe through faith we are saved... and faith without action is dead.
- Purpose: We seek to fulfill our God given purpose for our lives.
- Service: We serve God through service to others, selfless acts and living on purpose.
- Good stewardship: We commit to faithfully managing money and resources by biblical principles.
- Truth & Integrity: We commit to speaking the truth from our hearts and doing the right thing.
