The Friends of SJF non-profit was started in 2015, with the goal of reaching friends, supporters and donors who want to make a difference in Haiti. Our organization is based in IOWA, USA. Our board members either travel to Haiti or live in Haiti, and each of us has been philanthropically active in Haiti for years. We are united in our belief that with a little love and caring plus fearless leadership, we can have an impact that may last for generations. As an independent 501c3 non-profit, we offer tax deductible donations to our donors. We work closely with the St. Joseph Family and other Caribbean based non-profit service organizations, to help provide resources, projects, services and medical care. Our board members are committed to making the best use of donor funds, by focusing on on low-cost & high-impact sustainability.
The St. Joseph Family is our primary funding partner in Haiti.
The St. Joseph Family is celebrating 32 years of continuous operation in Haiti. The SJ Family has graduated over 105 boys into adulthood and independent living. Each member of the SJF leadership team grew up in the St. Joseph Family. As children, each was rescued off the streets of Haiti and provided with an opportunity for a better life. Now they are in running the SJF organization. A testament to the quality and integrity of the organization that Michael founded. Jacky, Bill, Walnes, Daniel, Maya and many others - living testaments to the spirit and power of the St. Joseph Family.
