Hope Orphanage

Donald Joseph’s dream and vision is that the widows and orphans in his area would be cared for, both physically and spiritually.  He has been impacted by the verse in James 1:27 that states “pure and genuine religious in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to the let the world corrupt you.” He and his wife, Lacnise, now operate Center Hope orphanage in the central plains of Haiti.  Between the two of them and a small staff, they care for 56 orphans and 40 widows!  They understand the need is great but that God is greater.  They are committed to using any funds that God passes through them to provide food, clothing, shelter, and education for those in their care.

How can you help?


  • Pray that the physical needs would be met so that the faith of those they care for could continue to grow.
  • Pray that those involved in the ministry would not grow weary and lose heart.


  • Finances for food.  Costs are rising in Haiti.
  • Finances for education.
  • Finances for structures.  They are in desperate need for a new boys and girls dorm.  They currently have land to build on.  The estimated cost for a new boys dorm, girls dorm, kitchen and bathroom is $23,000.
