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.
Your contribution will be used with integrity for dignity.
In Their Words
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.
