I volunteered a year ago and it was an amazing experience. I saw first hand the good works of the ACFFC. I would assist them again in a heartbeat. I wish continue success to a wonderful organization helping some awesome kids.

The art created is truly unique, benefiting not only the children/students, but the recipient as well. Young people learn a trade, while devloping as an individual and an artist.

I found ACFFC in 2007, and my life has never been the same! I have been involved in many service learning fundraisers with college students for this group. I have made many trips to Haiti to work at the foundation. I am impressed for many reasons: ALL donations go straight to ACFFC, none kept for "administrative" crap! The foundation is a wonderful combination of art and education; they are helping to teach these young people how to become self-sustaining adults and contributing members of their community. One of my students once said, "You may not change the world, but you changed the world for one person.!" That's what it's all about- changing the world, one person at a time, and the amazing thing is that as much as it changes them, it changes me more!

I was first attracted to this organization because it combines education and art. I continue to be attracted to ACFFC because of that and also because they are helping these young people to become contributing members of their community; they also do not keep any monies for overhead--unheard of in this day of non-profits. I have visited ACFFC in Jacmel several times; the children are eager learners and very respectful--something that is often rare in America. Being involved in education for 42 years, I find this to be a credible organization, both personally and professionally.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

first-hand, hands on experiences both in the USA and in Jacmel, Haiti.

Our university has embraced ACFFC; we have done two months of service learning projects for this organization. It has been such a great learning experience for me, as well as our students. We have had silent auctions, raffles, and a penny war. I wrote a grant w/Pearson Learning Solutions, who provided seed monies for our Composition II classes. Our graphic design students just finished a competition by designing a brochure for ACFFC. We are anxious to continue this great educational experience.

The Great!

Haiti has monuments of aid which failed to aid, buildings without staff to help people(a uninversity, etc). ACFFC is the opposite, an organization that invest in Haiti's people, educating and encouraging it's children. I often doubt independent aid organizations, but a Haitian native I respect told me how much difference this organization makes, and how it keeps families together.

I visited Haiti twice. It's a great, cheap Caribbean vacation. But in it's markets I'd occasionally see a face which would haunt me, children and women who I just knew weren't eating regularly or were really struggling to survive. So I'm grateful to an organization which gives me hope for people who deserve it.
I've donated to a lot of causes, but i feel especially great about supporting ACFFC.

I discovered ACFFC during my first visit to Haiti one year ago. I was so impressed with the program, the staff and the children in the program that I am now involved as a volunteer on a regular basis. What I have come to learn over the past year is that the program is truly amazing. ACFFC has been able; on a very tight budget to continue to grow their program. The approach is truly unique, striving to not only provide for the children’s daily educational, food and medical needs but also within a creative environment enable the children to grow into adults equipped to utilize their talents and skills toward a goal of economic self-sufficiency. They are a family, a community all working together toward a common goal.

I've been fortunate enough to help ACFFC out since 2011. It's been wonderful to see the progress the kids have made, be able to see them grow up and have them be so involved in the creative side of life. I adore all of them and adore what Judy, George, Jen, Guy and everyone has done to help them along the way.

My husband & I became aware of this foundation through the efforts of Judy Hoffman, who is dedicated beyond words to help these children through their struggles with art and creativity. This nurtures the soul and ignites the spirit to move beyond the day to day and to keep moving forward through the lens of seeing hope and possibility through art. This organization provides the instruction, the foundation, and the inspiration for these children and they are surrounded by dedicated people every day. They all do such great work, and the children are amazing! The mosaic wall is my favorite! My husband & his company have donated tons of tile to them and we couldn't be happier when we see the pictures.

I am so very moved by the great work ....continuing great work...that this organization does. The mindful nature of the organization's mission is at the core of all the projects they do as they involve and teach the kids and young adults to take their place in the community as leaders. The shift that the kids experience is beyond amazing.

I've worked with the ACFFC thanks to the fellow Nonprofit organisation, Random Acts. Each visit I've made has had a bigger and deeper impact upon my life. The dedication of the staff and volunteers to the school is reflected back in the joy and skills instilled in their students. It truly is the perfect example of 'what you put in is what you get out.' The staff and volunteers put in so much love and effort into the ACFFC and the evidence speaks for itself as the school continues to thrive and grow and achieve greatness for all involved.

As a working flight attendant with easy access to Haiti, I have had to pleasure of visiting ACFFC in Jacmel, and seeing first hand the benefits that the children gain in their "adopted" home. By teaching the children a skilled trade through art and crafts, the countless smiles I saw tell the real story of how the children are empowered to better their futures and by extentsion, also their immediate families. As an example, the kids have been directly responsible for changing the "face" of Jacmel by learning and participating in the mosaic resurfacing of several prominent locations throughout the community, thus incorporating many aspects of forward thinking: i.e. recycling, beautifying, tourism...etc. ACFFC is a fantastic organization committed to children's health, welfare, and the future of Haiti.
