Since the 2010 earthquake,
Mission of Hope has built over 600 homes for families who were living in blue tents through its Blue to Block project.

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 was granted land by the Interim Haiti Relief Commission after the earthquake as a place to rebuild homes for those living in tents.  With that land, MOH launched Blue to Block, a program to build 500 permanent homes for displaced families.  This resettlement community became known as Leveque. Now, with over 600 homes complete, the Leveque community has become one of the most successful resettlement communities in all of Haiti, creating a truly thriving community with a church, school, clean water, and sustainable farming. Over 150 hearing-impaired families from the La Piste slums have been integrated into the community as well.  

Each home costs approximately $6,000 to build and includes 3 rooms, a small plot of land for farming, a detached bathroom, fruit trees, and access to education, a church, clean water, and training in agriculture.  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.
