THE STORY:

Since 2003, Joint Council has assisted in the improvement and reform of Haiti's child welfare system, working with IBESR, intergovernmental organizations and nongovernmental organizations in Haiti for the protection of child welfare services. Joint Council’s greatest impact has been in ensuring the future of intercountry adoption in Haiti.
Following the devastating earthquake in January 2010 Joint Council stepped up its efforts to ensure the future of Haitian children. In the month following the earthquake Joint Council and its partner organizations served over 45,000 children and families through programs at hospitals, medical clinics, child care centers, adoption and food distribution programs; assisted with the development, coordination, and implementation of the USCIS Humanitarian Parole Program for children to ensure 1,100 children were placed with adoptive families in the United States; coordinated emergency response to orphanages and institutions in Haiti immediately following the earthquake; created and distributed a database used to identify children, families, emergency relief needs, and permanency options.
Since 2010 Joint Council has continued its focus on improving the child welfare and protection system in Haiti – assisting with the development and implication of improved systems at IBESR and reforming child welfare legislation, policies and programs.
