Our Mission is Simple
Saving Lives and Bringing Sustainable Programs to the Haitian People The mission at J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO) is simple: To save lives and bring sustainable programs to the Haitian people quickly and effectively. Following the tragic earthquake of 2010, J/P HRO began working immediately to make meaningful and lasting impact in Haiti
About J/P HRO
Today, J/P HRO programs focus on supporting the residents of the camps we manage and surrounding areas transition from life left homeless by the earthquake to durable, sustainable and prosperous communities. Early on, J/P HRO became camp manager of Pétionville Camp, serving up to 60,000 internally displaced persons. Our team has committed to assist these families as they transition from camp life to safe communities. Our staff, which is 95 percent Haitian, is working every day to provide education, health and community development, and economic opportunities.
Taking a geographically focused and integrated approach to community regeneration, J/P HRO programs empower the residents of Delmas 32 to revitalize their neighborhood. Together, we aim to demonstrate that something fundamentally different can come from a slum in the center of one of the world’s poorest cities: sustainable and prosperous communities. We work with the support and in collaboration with local and national government leaders, community based organizations, other international NGO’s, UN agencies, donors and-most importantly-the community members themselves.
