St.Vincent's Center For Handicapped Children is a residential and day school for seriously handicapped children in Haiti. The center provides for the residential, nutritional and medical needs of some 300 children mostly of elementary school age. The center, like many institutions in Haiti, is chronically underfunded and relies heavily on the help and support of caring individuals and groups in the United States. Some provide financial assistance while some others donate professional skills through visits to the school in support of urgent needs or continuing programs.
The Friends of St. Vincent's Center, Inc. is a small group of volunteers formed to help organize and facilitate such support. It is a 501(c)3 tax exempt Connecticut non-profit, charitable corporation with no paid staff and minimal operating overhead. We thank you for your visit today and hope you will explore many of the pages offered at this web site and feel moved to join us in our efforts to care for these beautiful children.
