Help support the children of the St. Joseph Family by becoming a Tree of Life child sponsor. Through your tax-deductible sponsorship contribution to Hearts with Haiti, you can help the St. Joseph Family provide the best available daily care, housing, and education for children and young adults that would otherwise have very bleak futures. For just $30 per month or $360 US per year, individuals, families, groups, and schools can help offset the costs for the education and care of the children.

Trinity House study group - child sponsors make this possible!“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of draught and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8

How sponsoring a child benefits the children of Haiti

Tree of Life child sponsorship allows the children and young adults to know they are thought about, valued, and loved. Many of us with big, happy families too often take this for granted, but for a young person that grew up on the streets or as a slave, the care you show through your sponsorship makes a big difference.


How sponsoring a child benefits you

In addition to the knowledge that your contribution is having a direct impact on the life of a young person in Haiti, sponsors get to know children through letters, pictures, school reports, and biographies that are thoughtfully and regularly prepared by the St. Joseph Family and sent to your mailing address.

About the Tree of Life Child Sponsor Program Name

During the 2010 earthquake, St. Joseph Home for Boys Director, Bill Nathan, was thrown from the rooftop and fell seven stories to the concrete below. A single tree supported the weight of the St. Joseph Home for Boys and prevented the entire building from falling on top of Bill. That tree, and its life-saving energy, were the inspiration for the Tree of Life program and has become a symbol of divine protection for all the members of the St. Joseph Family.
