The Avanse Home for Children in Haiti

The Avanse Home for Children in Haiti, a center that is so desperately needed for the children of Haiti. Our home is a residential program that now serves boys from Haiti's largest slum, Cite Soleil. The program supports boys between the ages of 6-11 years old by providing a loving, nurturing and stable home life.

The Avanse home is run by a trained housemother who serves as a maternal influence to the children. We provide food, clothing, shelter, safety, adult support, healthcare and education. Life skills guidance is given to prepare our children for their futures and we add special care by providing emotional support to help our children overcome trauma from their pasts.
