  • Why I Serve: “After multiple mission trips to Haiti, including three working at St. Joseph’s, I believe that the SJF approach of caring for the most needy in the community at Wings of Hope, education scores of children at LST, and particularly of raising and educating boys at St. Joseph’s in a disciplined, loving and nurturing environment, and training them to be future leaders in their communities and in their country, is critical to the long term success of Haiti, and I want to do what I can to support that effort.”
