To provide resources, training, education and support to break the cycle of poverty and Restevak slavery.
Beauty Out of Ashes is an IBSER approved long-term residential foster home located in Fort Jacques, Haiti. We believe that every child has rights and one of those rights is to be loved as God first loved us. We also believe that every child deserves a chance and through the following programs we help give them the chance to reach adulthood and their God-given potential.
We believe that every child has the right to feel safe and be protected. We rent a safe home in a secure location and have built relationships in the community so whether the girls are inside the walls or out they known that they are protected.
We believe that mental health is as important as physical health. We strive to provide the support our kids need for proper psychological and emotional development. We will begin working with a licensed counselor this fall.
We believe that every child has a right to proper nutrition for their growth and development. We buy local fresh fruits and vegetables to support the community and to give our girls the nutrition rich diet they had previously been deprived of.
We believe that every child has a right to an education. Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and to building self-confidence. We are committed to helping our girls overcome cognitive obstacles and reach their full potential.
We believe that every child has a right to proper healthcare and medical treatment. A local nurse is on call and visits the girls periodically. She monitors their growth and treats them for any illnesses as well as preventing infection.
We believe that true freedom can only be found in Christ. We are committed to raising our girls in a Christian atmosphere and teaching them about God's unconditional love for them. We attend church together as a family.
