Mission Statement

Our vision is for a better Haiti, a strong Haitian-American and Native Haitian Immigrant community, whose members have power to make decisions about actions and policies that directly affect their lives. We make strides towards obtaining access to a range of social, political, cultural, and economic opportunities in a context of equity and social justice.

Description

Color of Hope (C.O.H) is a 501(c)(3) US based organization that works to improve the quality of life of Haitians in the U.S and Haiti. We provide access to education, platforms for constructive dialogue, resources and a technological environment for youth in Haiti to develop 21st century skills.

Color of Hope (C.O.H) is a grassroots, community-based organization that strives to strengthen Haiti, Haitian-Americans and the Haitian Immigrant community in Palm Beach County, FL and surroundings through the combined strategies of community organizing, advocacy, education social services, cultural outreach, leadership development, and forging productive relationships with other communities. C.O.H works to improve the quality of life of Haitians by building our community's capacity to be an active agent for positive social change.

We hope the idea of fortifying our community through direct investments into the Haitian community will stay with you. You will be investing directly into the backbone of the Haitian community.

Here are some of our programs that are already underway in development and implementation.

Solar Lights For Haiti : The Light up Haiti project provided solar lighting to 300 schools 500 families, with an average of 5 individuals per household and 200 people with disabilities in rural areas in Haiti.

Save Haiti Project

Our Haitian youth grows up in increasingly high-risk environments plagued by poverty, unstable single parenthood households and gang-related violence, non-existent health care, and inadequate housing. What is left of the infrastructure that supports the growth and development of children, e.g. the schools, alternative school programs, and access to caring adults has eroded throughout the country.

The Save Haiti Project calls for the creation of community centers throughout Haiti. We believe the centers will help increase social capital through family support initatives, leadership workshops, women empowerment, professional skill training and serve as emergency relief centers

The Haitian Diaspora Million Challenge:Mobilize the Haitian Diaspora to pull together some of its resources into a general fund to assist more effectively with the reconstruction of Haiti. The program seeks to raise a million dollars

National Haitian American Forum (NHAF) This annual Presentation is held in May in celebration of our Heritage Month. The forum is created to educate, uplift, and empower Haitian Americans by bringing people together and engaging them in thoughtful dialogue, leading the way to constructive action. Haitian Americans are longing for thoughtful, concrete discussions and debates from leaders in our community. These influential thinkers, entertainers, and politicians will take center stage to express their thoughts about some of the most pressing issues of today and to inspire innovative and lasting solutions.
