Friends, Your outpouring of love and support have been overwhelming. We can not thank you enough for your love, prayers, and financial support. While the St. Joseph Family was fortunate enough not to experience significant damage to their buildings, the damage they did suffer has a significant price tag to it. Evaluations are still being performed and estimates gathered, but as of right now, repair and replacement costs look like they will be upwards of $20,000. In addition, assessments are still being performed on the homes of employees and LST families, and we will share those reports with you when we receive them. But, thanks to the generosity of donors like you, repairs have already begun, and we are well on our way to meeting those expenses. Thank you!
Because you responded so quickly, the children and staff of the St. Joseph Family have been able to return to the comfort of their daily routines. Days are filled with school, physical and occupational therapy, friends, music, sports, tutoring, and lots of love. Every day the 32 kids at Wings, 5 boys under the care of St. Joseph’s, and 150 students at LST receive the best possible care – all because of the generosity and compassion of donors like you. But being able to continue to provide top quality care requires a simultaneous focus on ensuring there is proper funding to support the day-to-day operations of the SJF. Below, we’ve highlighted a couple of fun and easy ways for you to support the ongoing needs of the SJF, and we’ll soon be announcing a very exciting matching grant opportunity. We need your help to spread the word about the transformative ministry of the St. Joseph Family and ensuring that there are sufficient funds to maintain this critical ministry well into the future.
Mèsi anpil, not only for responding so quickly in a time of great urgency and need, but also for being there – day after day, month after month, year after year – for Haiti’s most vulnerable children.Share this:
