Much of this past year’s giving to COFHED was restricted to Hurricane Matthew relief and the construction of the Community Engagement Center. As the demand and scope of our work in Haiti grows, our operating expenses have grown as well. Our team in Haiti does incredible work in partnership with marginalized communities. In order to support these life-changing partnerships, our regular income needs a boost. Please consider making a monthly or one-time gift to invest in our relationships in Marc, Raymond and Lougou communities.

2017 COFHED Gala
We are so grateful for all of our friends and supporters who were able to join us last night at Hamline University. The night felt very special to be able to come together and celebrate this method of community engagement that truly has long term impact. To quote Glenn Smucker, one of our panelists, “It works.”
Thanks again to our great panelists for an enlightening discussion: Glenn Smucker, Vernande Joseph, Andy White, and Madeleine Avignon. And thanks to all who were a part of the event alongside of us. If you would like to look at pictures from the event you can check them out here or on Facebook.
