Mission Statement

The Dirt Road Project inspires courageous living through empowering disadvantaged peoples with hope, passion, and purpose and leads in love to reach the broken with respect and integrity.

Description

The Dirt Road Project (TDRP) was founded in 2017 as a 501(c)(3) NYS nonprofit organization. Recognizing the significant deficits in sustainable options for disadvantaged populations, both in Rochester and Haiti, TDRP was formed to address such deficits through the creation of healthcare, education, agriculture, housing, and employment opportunities.

In 2017, TDRP began its work in the rural farming community of Hinche, located in the Central Plateau of Haiti. Since the inception of its first outreach, 600 individuals received healthcare and emergency medical intervention, 10 Haitians have become gainfully employed, 200+ students receive yearly tuition assistance, several families receive monthly food allotment, and a family of six enjoy a new home protected from the harsh elements of Haiti.

In the fall of 2018, TDRP added a new location to its focus, Rochester, NY, for the purpose of addressing the housing crisis affecting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Currently, in the development phase of The Village at Shelter Creek (TVSC). The unique TVSC model addresses the need for safe, accessible, affordable, and individualized housing/supports for people with I/DD as well as other disadvantaged peoples, such as single mothers with children, older adults, victims of trafficking, etc. TVSC will offer much more than housing, it will provide opportunities to live intentionally in a holistic community that promotes dignity and empowerment.
