No Place Like Home orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti was founded by long-term Baptist missionaries, Jacques & Marie Alexandre following the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010. Countless children were left homeless and many were orphaned that day. The humble beginnings of the orphanage was a result of the amazing grace of God and numerous people coming alongside the Alexandre’s to build a place of loving care and safety. Today, No Place Like Home is at capacity, and we are planning an orphanage expansion to care for many more children. Please partner with us and sponsor a child, or contribute to the facility’s expansion.
No Place Like Home is currently at capacity and needs to expand so that we can care for more children.
We own an adjoining 125′ x 85′ vacant lot and are currently raising funds to construct additional facilities. Please visit the Orphanage Expansion page for more details about this critical project.
SPONSOR A CHILD
We need people to take interest in the children at No Place Like Home and sponsor a child on a monthly basis.
The ongoing costs at our Christian Haiti orphanage for food, housing, clothing, medicine, education, transportation, etc., are very real, just like they are for your family.

Orphanage Construction Continues
We praise The Lord that the work is continuing on the jobsite at No Place Like Home orphanage in Haiti. Here are some photos showing how the foundation and columns are being reinforced with rebar. Once the rebar is all in place, the mixing and pouring of the concrete will begin! We are one step closer to providing housing for 50 children in Haiti, but we still need your help in raising additional funds to complete the construction. Please DONATE TODAY.

After much prayer, planning and fundraising we are excited to finally begin work on the orphanage expansion at No Place Like Home orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti!
Quench Their Thirst
At the same time we were planning the new construction we discovered that the existing well at the orphanage was running dry. So we contracted with Blue Ridge International in Haiti to come drill a much deeper well to supply the entire compound, including the new facility that’s being built. Here you will find some photos of the process. I am reminded of Jesus in John chapter 4 as he spoke with the woman at the well and said, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” We are passionate about providing clean drinking water to the children at NPLH, but we are even more passionate about introducing them to the One who can quench their spiritual thirst.
Digging The Foundation
In July Ted Bailey, Jason Ramsey, Jacques Alexandre and I met in Haiti to get the project started. We met with our Christian brothers Moise Bellande who serves as engineer on the jobsite, and Roland David who oversees local products procurement. Also, “Boss Louis” who oversees the Haitian work crews was part of these kickoff planning meetings. During the week it became evident that before we start digging we need to have a soil study performed, so we hired a local company for this study. Little did we know how long that would take. They finally came on August 17 to dig and take soil samples. Then in September we finally received the green light that our original plan – with some slight modifications – was solid.
Work has now begun on this Haiti orphanage construction project, and as you’ll see from these photos it’s a very manual process. Local Haitians have been hired to dig the foundation with pick axes, shovels and wheel barrels. These men are glad to have employment, and we are thankful for their labor.
Please keep this project in your daily prayers. Prayers are specifically appreciated for: 1) safety for the workers, 2) additional funding. If you would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
