About Us

Haitian Families First (HFF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to putting family first in Haiti.

Poverty, crisis, and trauma has forced more than 30,000 children to be placed in orphanages. When our founders Jamie and Ali first went to Haiti in 2002, they volunteered in an orphanage to help these vulnerable children. They soon realized how unnecessary these institutions were, as they were actually separate loving families.

HFF runs programs that provide medical, nutritional and educational support to help these families remain together and create a self-sufficient future.
