Accurate statistics are not known, but the vast majority of Haitian deaf children do not have access to education taught in sign language and are often not qualified for employment. They grow up completely dependent on others.
By providing a nurturing Christian environment and access to language development, academic and spiritual education, vocational training, job placement and deaf advocacy training, we believe we will equip the children with the skills they need to qualify for employment and a future of independence. Our vision is for the Deaf in Haiti to be empowered and self-reliant.

We opened in September 2013 for students who required housing while attending school in Leveque, Haiti. Traditional day schools do not exist for deaf children in Haiti so beds were immediately filled, providing access to education that would otherwise not exist for these students. We have filled to a capacity of 54 students and have at least that many on the waiting list. Expansion plans are underway!
Deaf adults staff the dorms and provide Christ based parenting and role modeling. Sign Language is the primary means of communication, expanding the world for many of these children who joined us with no means of communicating with their families or friends.
