Chances for Children

The mission of Chances for Children is to improve the lives of children in Haiti. Our organization has received generous support from the Friess Family Foundation to provide financial and strategic support for existing orphanages and schools in Haiti. Chances for Children supports two adoption orphanages (crèches as they are called in Haiti) and four non-adoption orphanages. Our sites are located in Kenscoff, Les Cayes, Ouanaminthe and Port au Prince.

Chances for Children provides school sponsorships to 400 children who attend school and the foundation provides monthly care to over 300 children living in orphanages. In 2011 we will expand our outreach by adding additional schools, vocational training, agricultural programs and medical clinics to create sustainable communities within Haiti.
