Health care, education, and community development in rural Haiti since 1983.

OVERVIEW

The St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (SBHF) strives to improve life for the poor of Haiti by facilitating access to quality, affordable health care, educational opportunities and community development programs. Our goal is to create a model of successful, sustainable development in rural Haiti that relies on local leadership and work force and that can be replicated throughout the country. We believe the only way to achieve this goal is by empowering Haitians to help Haitians. We work to improve health and quality of life for all members of the community at every stage of their lives.

Founded in 1983, SBHF has grown into a recognized and award-winning leader in community-based care. Programs include our hospital in Fond-des-Blancs in southern Haiti, a satellite clinic in the village of Villa, a network of community health workers and mothers’ counselors, mobile clinics, nutrition programs, scholarships, community development programs, and Haiti’s first Spinal Cord Injury rehabilitation center. Nearly 200 employees (98% of whom are Haitian) see more than 67,000 patients visit every year, and interact with thousands of community members. SBHF’s Fiscal Year 2015 saw the opening of our new Maternal Health Center in Fond-des-Blancs and the opening of improved, permanent facilities in Villa.

2015 also marks the eighth consecutive year Charity Navigator has awarded SBHF its coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management—a distinction only 1% of charities in the US can claim. Fully 89% of all contributions go directly to supporting our core programs in health, education and community development.
