Good Hope Boys' Home
From August 2008 through September 2008, Haiti was hit by four back-to-back hurricanes in a period of about four weeks. First hurricane Fay, then hurricanes Gustav, Hannah, and Ike left much devastation in their paths. Many mission groups immediately reached out to meet needs. Missions In Haiti helped in some of those areas also, but we felt we needed to do something to help for the long term.
We decided to open a boy's home to bring in boys who had lost everything as a result of those storms. After informing other mission groups we were taking in boys, Good Hope Boy's Home was born. It started with 12 boys who had lost everything from the storms. We have set the maximum number at 25 boys and it has now grown to 22 boys, so we have a little room left for growth.
