Sponsor A Child

Each of the children in our care have a limited amount of sponsors; each committing to a monthly $35 donation that together covers the total cost of a child's care at Hands and Feet Project. As a child sponsor, you would receive updates, pictures, and messages via email or by logging into your sponsor profile. 100% of all Child Sponsorship funding is dedicated to our Child Care Programs.

We view each of our children as members of our Hands and Feet Project family. Just like any parent, we are very proud of each child and dream of their future. Meet our kids and read about what makes each child unique, where they live and how we serve them by choosing one of their images below.

Circle of Care Definitions

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. Haiti's child welfare department 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 responsibilities for their wellbeing. Through our staff and caregivers, we are providing family for these children who have lost or limited connection to their biological family.
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. The goal is to prepare them for our Independent Living Program by helping them become more involved in the management of the home including budgeting, prioritizing needs, facilitating the menu and market shopping, delegating of chores, etc. They also have the opportunity to earn more freedoms as they display our Village Values (love, honesty, obedience, and responsibility) and act with integrity in the home, on our campus, and at school.
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.
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. This program was developed to provide support for children who have expressed a need for more one-on-one care.
This program is designed to advocate for keeping families together by providing support to families and their children in the community who are experiencing hardship. We customize this program for each family considered high risk. Sometimes family preservation looks like respite care and support to meet the short term needs of a family in crisis, while others are more long term. This can be education, food support, medical care, social services, and parental coaching. Children through our daycare program are designated as Family Preservation & Support, as our goal through the daycare is to support this young child's education for these at risk families well beyond daycare services.
This program is for children who have been placed back into their home of origin, because the initial reason for abandonment has been resolved. HAFP works toward reunification for every child for whom reunification would be a safe and appropriate option. This program helps supplement the increase of expenses for an agreed amount of time, and covers 100% of the educational expenses in these families.
This is for young adults who are no longer in any of our other programs, but are continuing to pursue their education.
This is a 9 month-2 year program designed to provide a safe and stable living environment to survivors who have been rescued from the human trafficking industry. Just like our other programs, girls who are placed in our Aftercare Program will be placed with us through Haiti's child welfare department. HAFP staff and caregivers will provide support and advocacy as the girls seek to transition from a past life controlled by abuse into a life of healthy relationships and independence. Each survivor will start an intensive therapy program, receiving therapy several times a week. They will also receive life skills training, including daily living skills, budget and money management, nutrition, decision making and goal planning, and educational development.
This is for young adults who have been completely aged out and have graduated or are no longer pursuing education or able to pay for their own education. These young adults may receive benevolent medical care, food support and other emergency needs. These young adults may also be in the process of working through their life plan and applying for their Dream Fund.
