Please help The Three Angels build the Kenbe Fem Family Center in Haiti. It will help hundreds of families in Port-au-Prince come out of poverty, one family at a time.
Since 2003, Three Angels Children’s Relief has reached some of the most at-risk families and orphans in Haiti through a variety of programs aimed to serve the whole person and whole family. These include education, health, jobs programs, orphan care and spiritual development. In 2012, Three Angels opened Angel House in a new facility to address the needs of both orphans and the needs of families struggling with the decision to give up a child. For orphans with absolutely no hope, we facilitate international adoptions, finding quality homes for these children.
