Our programs combine Haitian leadership with international partnership, creating lasting solutions to the most pressing challenges facing Haiti.


Our Mission


We provide healthcare, education, and dignified humanitarian outreach to the least served populations of Haiti, with programs that employ more than 1,000 Haitian staff members.


Our History


An inspired group of inspired Haitian leaders founded the programs of Fondation St. Luc in 2000 with the support of their mentor, Father Rick Frechette. Together, these leaders worked in the densely populated shantytowns around Port au Prince, running medical clinics and simple schools. Since then, with the assistance of international partners, the programs of Fondation St Luc have grown organically, one steady step at a time, into a multi-tiered and interrelated system of programming.

The St. Luke Foundation for Haiti, the U.S.-based counterpart to Fondation St Luc, was officially incorporated in the fall of 2010. The St. Luke Foundation for Haiti is a 501(c)3 with the mission of supporting the leadership and staff of Fondation St. Luc programs in Haiti.
