Haiti Housing Project

Father Hyvenson's childhood home
In seminary at the University of the South, Sewanee, I had the great privilege of sharing an apartment with the Rev. Hyvenson Joseph. Father Hyvenson was born and raised just outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Like so many others, Father Hyvenson's extended family in Haiti was affected by the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti in January 2010. Working with friends, colleagues, and others, Father Hyvenson has drawn up a plan to help these individuals.

The plan will put a roof over the heads of  6 family units (39 individuals). To date, $12,000 has been raised. While the total cost is $40,000, another $8,000 will allow them to break ground first stage of the project and get started with construction.

The project has been endorsed by the Episcopal Bishop of Southeast Florida, the Bishop of Haiti, and is supported by a number of congregations. We are now looking for individual donors to help us get to our goal. Perhaps you could help. Perhaps you could help this family in need.

Please consider donating through the Haiti Housing Project online donation site, or checks may be addressed to St. Philip's Episcopal Church, with "Haiti Project" in the memo line. St. Philip’s Episcopal Church 465 15th Street Pompano Beach, Florida 33060
