We are Providing Families through our staff and caregivers for children who have lost or have limited connection to their biological family.  

 

Our Purpose

The purpose of Providing Families is to ensure that each child who is under the guardianship of Hands & Feet Project receives high quality care, from the time that they are placed on our campus to the time that they transition into independence and community interdependence. 

 

Our Programs 

Residential Care & Support: This is the program that most people think of when they think of Hands and Feet Project; it is for our children who live at our Children's Village. IBESR (Haiti Child Services) assigns guardianship of the children in our Residential Care & Support Program to the Hands and Feet Project. We provide complete care for these children and assume complete responsibility for their wellbeing. Through our staff and caregivers, we are providing family for these children who have lost or have limited connection to their biological family. This program is meant for children ages 0-16.

Guidance and Preparation (GAP) Program: This program is designed to fill the "gap" between our Residential Care and our Independent Living Program. Youth in this program are still under our guardianship and responsibility, though there is a minor shift in the way their care is facilitated. These children live in family-style homes with Life-Coaches who teach them basic living skills, as well as help them navigate their formative young adult years. This program is designed for children ages 16-18.

Independent Living Program: This program is for young adults ages 18-21 who once lived on our Children's Village campus in the Residential Care & Support Program but have since "aged-out". The goal of this program is to help our children continue to smoothly transition away from life in our Children's Village. This is done by moving them into a "transition home" in the community, where they will also learn community interdependence: how the communities support, interact, and do life together. Their schooling, housing & utilities, food, and personal supplies are provided. However, we encourage them to find a job in the community, where they can earn money that they can use to save and/or purchase any "extras." Each transition home has a live-in Resident Advisor who is hired by HAFP to help guide these young adults through these last steps.

Community-Based Residential Care: This program is most similar in structure to our Residential Care & Support Program. Haiti's child welfare department assigns guardianship of the children in our Community-Based Residential Care Program to the Hands and Feet Project. We provide complete care for these children and assume complete responsibilities for their wellbeing. Instead of living in our Children's Village, children in this program live in homes in the community, with families who are approved by HAFP and IBESR (Haiti Child Services). This program was developed to provide support for children ages 0-18 who have expressed a need for more one-on-one care.

College Scholarship Fund: A competitive program in which students are asked to prepare and submit a College Scholarship Application. Not every student who applies is guaranteed a scholarship. Scholarships may be awarded to those who submit a thorough and outstanding application, and who have demonstrated the skills needed to excel in college. The College Scholarship Fund is designed to be both a challenge and an opportunity for young adults raised at Hands and Feet Project to rise to the occasion and show their determination to do well in college.
