Mission: The mission of Haitian Alliance for Community Action, Inc. is to create better life opportunities for the most underprivileged children in the underdeveloped rural communities of Bellevue de la Montagne, an area south of Petionville, Haiti; to provide them with the basic necessities of life such as food, education and health care in order to facilitate the development of individuals into productive citizens, creating the basis for strong families and successful communities.

Results: In 2010, HACA started supporting schools in the area and helping pay the teachers’ meager salaries. We started a sponsorship program in 2015 which has grown from 21 to 25 students, ages 5 to 23, who are learning and advancing in grades. To date, we have 3 graduates, 1 in carpentry, 1 in plumbing and 1 in baking and pastries, who are making a living and supporting their families with their crafts. HACA has a food distribution program to alleviate hunger in the area. For the past 2 years, we have had to increase the food distribution to 2 per year to respond to the growing need for assistance.

Target demographics: Underprivileged children and families

Direct beneficiaries per year: 25 children ages 5 to 23 with scholarship and 350 needy families with hunger alleviation

Geographic areas served: The underdeveloped rural communities of Haiti

I joined HACA on a trip to Haiti in December 2015. The dedication the organization has to helping the underprivileged of Haiti was warming to see. We spent days gathering and organizing canned goods, school supplies, food, and more into care packages. People came from all over and received a package. So many stories and gratitudes were given by the people. It was extremely rewarding to be a part of such generosity and love. It was clear to see that the members of HACA really cared about the people and truly wanted to help. They aren’t some big named company removed from those they are serving but right there giving a ear, a hug, and laughs. It was amazing to get to connect first hand with the people of Haiti. I look forward to being able to join them for many more trips.

I've had the opportunity to volunteer for this organization in 2016 while I was in NJ visiting a family. I must say the work that they are doing is very much needed in a country such as Haiti. They provide a lot essentials to different families in their community such as medical equipment, clothing, diapers, Formula and most importantly dry food. The organization is well run by a close knit group who have a great understanding of the people in Haiti really needs.

HACA was started from the heart of a few people, in 2009, including two sisters. Madeleine Cazeau and Nola Monval members, of the First United Methodist Church in Englewood NJ. As their pastor I saw firsthand their passion to help the needy of Haiti when the church partnered with them to help generate funds. Their mission is to improve hunger, provide education and healthcare to the marginalized of Bellevue de la Montague. Food distribution is done twice a year to many families; over twenty students are enrolled in their school, and there is also, a Nurses for Hope Program where young people are trained to help in the community.
Covid-19 has been a great threat to them, and in times of these uncertainties, the future looks grim, therefore, I hope you will join in supporting this organization, whether in big or small ways, everyone can do something. Let us reach out and join with them to continue to make a difference.
May our hearts be stretched out in compassion towards others, especially those in need.

This organisation is based on honesty and transparency, and dedication . with the small amount of money they have from hand to hand collections . they let their compassion lead them to do great things, such as helping the people to go to school,feed them,clothed them and most importantly put a smile on their face.

" a child today, and an adult tomorrow" Join your hands and your heart with the Haitian Alliance for Community Action,Inc. to help the needy. God will Bless you .

As a volunteer I have not only witnessed but participated in advancing one of the missions of this organization which is to provide quality educational services. One of the ways they do that is through sponsoring students' education and another way is by providing much needed school supplies to the students in their sponsorship program and in the community. All of the work done is 100% volunteer based. Despite everyone having their own jobs, they show perseverance to help those in need.

As a volunteer it's amazing to see a true grassroots organization like this. Since, volunteering I've seen this organization deliver food, educational, and medical services to truly in need communities in Haiti. They have great connections with community leaders and are able to organize mass distribution of goods.

Definitely will be volunteering with them and again, and for anyone looking to help Haiti reach out to this group

This organization believes that every child deserves a future. Although , In Haiti they are faced with many challenges, they always fight for children's rights and made sure that they have a great start in life. They have created educational programs to help our youngsters succeed as well as providing mental and emotional support. As an educator for many years in the American system , I can honestly say that this organization has a lot of compassion and I am proud of the work that they are doing.

I am taking the time to let my sentiments be known concerning this organization, Haitian Alliance for Community Action inc.
because I have seen them in action.
Their selfless acts of helping those who are less fortunate aught to be applauded.
Because I saw how the organization was bent on improving lives without reward or benefits drove me to offer my assistance for the betterment of humanity.
My skills as a caterer came to play in helping fundraising events which allowed the poor to be educated, to be fed, to be clothed and encouraged believing that no matter how dark things may look, there is a very bright light at the end of the tunnel. The light that can help the poor be lifted to reach their dreams and aspirations because besides God, there is a group who cares for them and desire for them to flourish in every area of their lives. This group, is willing to put aside their own selfish agendas and lend a hand to those in need.
I will implore anyone reading this to reach out to The Haitian Alliance for Community Action inc. and give the best donation that you can. It is said that we are blessed to be a blessing so channel your desire to bless someone today through The Haitian Alliance for Community Action inc.

The organization that focuses only on helping the people without any benefits are rare. However, the Haitian Alliance for Community Action has strived to remain unique. The organization has performed several endeavors in Petion Ville, Haiti, with little help from friends and family members. I encourage everyone to make throughout research before making any donations to an organization. Should you want to donate your time, money and knowledge the Haitian Alliance is a great place to start.
