HAITI MAMA

 

Bringing Family Back 

Can you imagine the world without your mama?
80% of children institutionalized in orphanages have families in the community. Parents are just too poor to feed and educate their kids. Orphanages are an out-dated solution to poverty. Children need their family; mamas deserve to be mamas. 

We provide a community-based service alternative. We work to reunite children with kin, rehabilitate impoverished parents, and restore broken family systems. Our services empower each client to meet their own individualized goals for sustaining themselves and their families. We are committed to ethical practices that show dignity to the people we serve.

In Their Words

Since 2014, Haiti Mama has been addressing endemic poverty through actions of solidarity, love, and education, leading to a culture of sharing and dignity for all. Success must be like our daily bread, we can’t fail because [we at Haiti Mama] are their last chance and hope to stay alive.

I was living on the streets.
What Haiti Mama did for me- they brought me home. Now, I stand as a person among people.
I feel at ease.
I can say life has become a gentle breeze.

I have been sleeping on street with five children
for three months.
The only one there for us was Jesus.
And now Haiti Mama.

In The Beginning

Social Work in haiti 

Founder, Tausha Pearson, learned most children in Haitian orphanages have families while conducting research for her Masters thesis. In 2014, she met ten hungry, dirty, homeless little boys at a park in Petion-Ville, and her life was forever changed.

Tausha returned to the park with her two sons, ten heaping plates of food and began intake assessments. The following week, she hired four Haitian Social Work students to help and Haiti Mama was born. Two months later, all ten boys were reunited with their families, and enrolled in school for the first time in their lives. Haiti Mama still works closely with these ten families plus many others. Four Haitian Social Work students have become leaders, and change makers for their country. 

 

Eight of the boys reunited in 2014; with Mama Tausha.
