HELO’s first home opened in November 2007. After renting a small home in Laborde, Haiti, wonderful house parents, a cook, housekeeper and teacher were hired and we welcomed ten beautiful children. The children were taught at the house, and we soon saw proof that Home Education Love and Opportunity can change the life of a child.
HELO’s mission is to provide Home Education Love and Opportunity to orphaned and abandoned children in Haiti. We currently have three homes, each housing a family unit: adult caretakers and 12-15 children. Over the years we have realized our dreams of having elementary and secondary schools on site, and summer vocational classes, providing the children of HELO a loving environment where they can learn to read and write and then learn a trade.
