Our mission is simple.

INSPIRE and ADVOCATE for persons with disabilities in Haiti.

Jacob's Color Link Initiative is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit corporation. We believe in investing in programs that allow persons with disabilities to become independent and free of the need for charitable donations. Our staff and executive team volunteer their time for the administration of Jacobs Color Link Initiative so that 100% of your donation goes toward our programming. 

 

campJacob is an annual retreat offered to the residents of St. Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Campers are brought to a resort on the northern coast of Haiti to a fun-filled environment that also offers a variety of holistic therapies and programming to develop life skills. 

 

campJacob removes the barriers of the campers' day-to-day lives that are restricted due to lack of accessibility, social stigma and funding. The program provides life skills and self-care training that builds confidence and inspires them toward independence. We work with the youth year-round to ensure the skills they have learned are being further developed and applied in their daily lives. The medical programming offered provides much needed physical and occupational therapy, setting the groundwork for independent living.

 

JCLI volunteers travel to Haiti from the United States and host campJacob over eight days. Each volunteer is required to fundraise a minimum of $2,800 USD to cover their travel and acommodations. In addition, the cost for each camper is approximately $1,600 USD. This includes travel expenses to and from the resort, accommodations at the resort, three full meals and two snacks a day, and a backpack filled with necessities for the week and supplies for the camp. Your donation funds a life-changing week for these children. Thank you for your support!
