One Child At A Time.
A cornerstone of AWAKENHAITI’s ministry is providing aid to orphans and foster children through the Good Samaritan Ministries. Good Samaritan is owned and directed by Haitians, Max and Margarette Cazeau. Good Samaritan Ministries has been in existence since 1997 and now operates a girls’ home and a boys’ home, and also supports several children and young adults in the surrounding community.
AWAKENHAITI began a relationship with Good Samaritan in 2008 with child sponsorship to help offset educational fees. Today, in our partnership with the Cazeau’s & Good Samaritan, we focus on supporting the children in the areas of education, daily needs, spiritual development and family.
The Good Samaritan Girls Home houses fifteen girls while the Good Samaritan Boys Home is home to eleven boys. The children in the homes come from various backgrounds and situations such as poverty, loss of one or both parents, abuse, child slavery, or abandonment. Our hope for each child while in the homes is that they learn to receive and extend love, acceptance, and grace.

As the children grow into older teens and young adults, AWAKENHAITI desires to help the students realize their God-given gifts and dreams, to establish avenues for post-secondary education and training, life skills development, and greater employment opportunities in order to establish self-sufficiency and strong Christian faith as adults.
