Since the 2010 earthquake,
many families are still living in tent homes!
Our goal is to provide over 600 of these families with long-term houses.
Each home costs about $6,000 to build.

Please consider giving a gift of any amount today to help us reach our goal!

In January of 2010, a devastating earthquake left hundreds of thousands of Haitians homeless, often lacking the means to rebuild their lives and their homes. Many well- intentioned organizations responded to meet the overwhelming immediate need by building temporary shelters and tents. These homes were meant to be a temporary solution but thousands of Haitian families are still living in these "tent" villages, amidst appalling living conditions.

Mission of Hope, in partnership with the Haitian Government and Hope for Haiti, began a project in November of 2010 called Blue to Block (previously known as MOH500). The goal of the project is to build new, long term homes for displaced families.

Since the initiation of this project, Mission of Hope has also partnered with 410 Bridge to incorporate a deaf community from the La Piste slums into the community at Leveque. Upon completion of this project, over 600 homes will be built in the Leveque Community, 160 of which will be for deaf families.

Each 42’ x 90’ lot provides a 16’ x 19’ three room block home, with a patio and a patio awning. Each home also has a toilet (outhouse) and a shower room (outside). The home is also painted inside and out. In addition, we are planting moringa trees, almond trees, and fruit trees on each lot and around the community. Each home costs approximately $6,000 to build.

The overall objective of Blue to Block is to build a community, not just a housing project. This is being accomplished by establishing a church, school, market place, clean water solutions, and playing fields. The development of the Leveque Community is well underway, with safe drinking water, agricultural training, a church, and a school already completed for use by the families.

With over 440 families already moved into homes, Mission of Hope has begun the final phase of home building, now utilizing an entirely local Haitian workforce to complete construction of the homes.
