Volunteer

Volunteers first join Friends of the Children of Haiti to offer their services to people in dire need. What they don’t expect though is the drastic impact their experience in Haiti has on their own lives.  Most say it is “life-changing.”

If you are interested in volunteering,  please fill out the Volunteer Application. We will review your application and contact you with more information.
