Friends of St. Vincent’s has been serving St. Vincent’s Center since 1994. Our current focus is offering St. Vincent’s adult graduates opportunities for advanced education and vocational training so they can lead productive, independent lives in their own country. We lead teams to work hands-on or virtually in Haiti, teaching vocational skills, aiding with housing and life skills, but most importantly, showing graduates that they are worthy of love and leading a fulfilling life on their own.
Haiti Rehabilitation Foundation (HRF) is working directly with UNEPH (Université Episcopale d’Haïti) to start four-year degree programs in Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy. St. Vincent’s Center was the inspiration for this project, as there is a great need for professional OT and PT services in the outpatient medical clinic, the school and the residential facility. St. Vincent’s will be one of the fieldwork sites and, we hope, one of the first clinics in Haiti to hire an OT/PT team. The first class of Haitian professionals will graduate in 2019.
