Emmaus House is working to grow our impact and become a more sustainable ministry in Haiti.
When Emmaus House originally founded, it was our intent to only serve youth aging out of the Cap Haitien Children's Home. However, we quickly became overwhelmed by the vast needs of ALL orphaned youth who were aging out of the systems in which they were brought up. Witnessing this need, we decided to expand our reach beyond one single orphanage.
Currently we rent two houses ($10,500 a year) and are at capacity with 17 residential students at one time. Owning our own property will enable us to become a more financially sustainable ministry, have a permanent residence in the city, and almost double the number of residential youth we can serve at one time. In addition to three residential homes, the new campus will also contain an administrative building, an outdoor classroom, and a small guest house.
