It's US Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers dedicated to serving children through FEH.
The Foundation’s commitment and effectiveness is rooted in the fact that it is a Haitian organization. FCH was established by a Haitian woman, and has always been operated by Haitians. The staff is experienced and capable. They understand and respect Haitian people and culture. And, since Haiti is their home, they are committed to the long term development of the country.

In a country where the unemployment rate is around 70 - 80%, secure and steady jobs are almost impossible to find.
