Join blackbox international in our haiti care center campaign
Be a part of changing lives as we raise $200,000 to build the Haiti Care Center. This center will help provide the crucial services that make up our aftercare program. Everything from counseling to education, family visits, art therapy, and more will take place in this thoughtfully designed building.
What will it be used for?
We chose the name, “The Care Center,” because it will be where so much of our holistic aftercare process takes place. This building will have rooms dedicated for 1:1 counseling; specialized education; private, safe visitations with family and guardians; offices for our staff to file legal paperwork; a computer lab for the boys to learn those skills; and training rooms so the staff are equipped to best serve the boys.
Why this specialized building?
If you’ve been following along with our work, you probably know that we’ve been invested in the Haiti project for a while. So, why this specific building?
The Care Center has been a part of our plan in Haiti from the start. This allows our residential building to be dedicated solely as the place where the boys live and sleep, which allows our safe house to reach a full capacity of up to 16 boys. It also gives our staff crucial office and training space.
What's the Need?
Because of previous funds that have been committed by generous donors, we will have already been able to purchase the land, construct the walls, install utilities, start the residential space, and to have the infrastructure in place. This allows us to build this particular center for an estimated cost of $200,000 which includes all materials and labor for construction. The architectural plans were generously donated, and we are also blessed to be partnering with another local organization in Haiti for the construction work.
How can you help?
