For Haiti With Love’s Starter Homes Shelter Single Mothers in Haiti

When finances run low, one question always seems to rise to the top – how can you do more with less? Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere, and many Haitians find creative ways to answer this question.

For Haiti With Love’s Eva DeHart says God gave them a solution they didn’t expect. “Everything just kind of fell into place for this one,” she says.

First, the opportunity – a believer in the U.S. contacted For Haiti With Love and said, “I have $5,000 I would like to give toward a home, but I can’t afford one of the big ones; I can only afford the $5,000,” DeHart says, explaining the “big” homes referred to For Haiti’s Pilgrim Houses. More about that here.

Instead of asking this believer to sponsor half of a traditional home, Eva and her team created a brand new program.

“It’s filling a need that we hadn’t filled before and doing more with less,” DeHart says.

For Haiti With Love paired the donor’s desire to give with a frequent need in the community. Single moms were turning to the ministry for help because they had nowhere to live. More about that here.
