Organization Information

Mission Statement

Sant La's mission is to empower, strengthen and uplift South Florida's Haitian community by providing free access to information and existing services to ensure its successful integration.

Description

History

Sant La was founded on December 6, 2000 by a group of community leaders and service providers concerned by the chronic gaps in services available to the Haitian community of South Florida. The primary focus was to address the community’s lack of understanding and awareness of available resources. Sant La launched its operations on June 15, 2001.

Since 2001, Sant La, the Haitian Neighborhood Center has become a lifeline for the Haitian/Haitian-American community. Sant La has accomplished this through community outreach, organizational partnerships, collaboration, documentation of needs, capacity building, civic engagement and impactful services. Sant La has also created a television program "Teleskopi" as an outreach tool to inform and engage the Haitian-American community, thus enhancing Sant La’s ability to link people to resources.

Under the leadership of a diverse Board of Directors, Sant La continues to remain focused on establishing best-practices in organizational culture, fund development, stakeholder relations, marketing and customer service; world-class governance; innovative practices, operating systems and programs.
