Our Mission Motivated by the inherent worth of each individual and our great care for the people of Haiti, the Saint Rock Haiti Foundation works side by side with the people of Saint Rock and the surrounding rural communities to enhance their lives through: Providing quality primary health care; Helping children and young adults access valuable education opportunities; Instituting community outreach programs that support economic sustainability; Investing in infrastructure to support overall health; and Empowering members of the community to advocate for their rights in the future. We recognize that through our on-going collaboration with the Haitian government and non-governmental organizations, we will support the shared goal of greater self-sufficiency. Our Vision The vision of the Saint Rock Haiti Foundation is a community in which each person can thrive in all aspects of life and create similar opportunities for other Haitians to thrive.
The SRHF Clinic officially opened November 18, 2002, staffed by Haitian health care professionals: including a part-time physician, dentist, and a full-time nurse. In addition to the Haitian staff, outreach trips by medical professionals from the United States augmented the care for the patient population.
The current clinic space now has three rooms dedicated entirely to patient consultation and treatment, as well as a dental office, pharmacy, clinical laboratory and patient triage room. As the number of registered patients surpasses 37,000 it is clear that the clinic must continue to grow as well. We have bought land and begun construction on a new health center that will serve many more patients in a setting the is tailored to providing high quality and dignified healthcare. We also venture out into surrounding areas and support a network of community health workers and offer a mobile clinic on a regular schedule to more far flung areas.
As we strive to treat the whole patient, acknowledging the complex web of biological, social, and environmental factors that impact human health, we have developed a number of community development programs that integrate our clinical services to maximize impact. Including education support, clean water initiatives, micro finance, and agriculture.
