What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Medical Programs

St. Luke’s medical programs provide high-quality care to over 60,000 patients each year through a multi-tiered system that developed organically, one step at a time, over our 15 years of operations.

St. Luke’s Hospital & International Training Center serves as the centerpiece of our system, with services that include emergency and critical care, specialty and elective surgeries, a GI lab, cholera treatment center, and radiology. Our international training partners include the Mayo Clinic, University of Maryland, The METI Project, and more. USAID’s American Schools and Hospitals Abroad Program has provided partial support for the construction of the new St. Luke's Hospital and International Training Center, slated to be opened in January of 2017.

Manitane Women’s Health Center provides care to more than 2,500 mothers each year, focusing on pre-natal visits and counseling, along with cervical cancer screening in collaboration with our partners at Basic Health International and Direct Relief.

St. Mary’s Hospital and Clinic Wharf Jeremie combine to see more than 25,000 patients per year. These programs provide outpatient consults, cholera treatment and community health to some of the least served neighborhoods in the world.

Klinik Timoun Nou Yo, Port Salut is the only pediatric health and medical center located in southwest Haiti. The clinic, founded by Jeff and Michele Boston, provides medical care for 70 children a day, providing vaccinations, food supplements, and education on breastfeeding and nutrition.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The St. Luke school system began on the streets of Cite Soleil. While Fr. Rick and the St. Luke team conducted medical clinics, they also began to run informal education programs for the children in the area. What started with humble activities aimed at keeping children active and off the streets has grown to be a comprehensive, state-accredited network of schools.

The majority of our 30 primary schools are located in the most challenging and least served areas of Port-au-Prince, while others have been opened in the provinces, including St. Louis du Sud, Camperin, Jacmel, Jeremie, Fonds des Blanc, and Limonade. Partners that enable these schools to thrive include the Andrea Bocelli Foundation; The Francesca Rava Foundation; Pen, Paper and Peace and others.

The students who graduate from our Port-au-Prince primary schools have the opportunity to attend our trailblazing secondary school, the Academy for Peace and Justice. The Academy is funded and supported by our long-time partners at Artists for Peace and Justice. APJ is committed to our students for the long haul and we are grateful for their devotion to our students.

After high school, our St. Luke students, along with members of the local community, can apply to attend our professional school, Notre Dame de Guadalupe, which has courses in Nursing, Telecommunications, Plumbing and Electrician Work with Solar Specialization. This school serves over 400 future leaders in their fields and has operated with great support from NPH Germany, ORT and the Dharma Drum Mountain Foundation.

The St Luke Outreach Programs are comprised of a diverse set of initiatives held together by a firm belief in the importance direct aid, job creation and training, and community engagement.

ST. FRANCISVILLE PRODUCTION AND TRAINING CENTER

Founded in 2009 and built in partnership and friendship with The Francesca Rava Foundation, NPH Italia, Francisville as it is referred to, has developed programs that produce the following high quality products: Bread, pasta, peanut butter,cement blocks, automotive repair, car wash, restaurant training and food preparation, and medical oxygen production. These programs provide over 50 jobs directly and also serve as a catalyst for small business creation through our micro-credit pasta sales initiative. Coming soon to Francisville will be a fish farm, industrial training and nutrition center, and hotel and hospitality suite.

MICRO-CREDIT AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT TEAM

In close partnership and coordination with the Francisville staff and direction, these teams go out into local communities creating business and commerce using low cost, high nutrition products of Francvisville. Our pasta, bread, and peanut butter is given in large quantity free or at deep discount so that local entrepeneurs can then sell these nutritious products in their own communities, providing jobs and feeding families.

CLEAN WATER DELIVERIES

Water trucks bring clean, potable water to the least served areas of the city six days a week, providing 3000 gallons of water and a great deal of hope in these areas.

CARING FOR THE DECEASED

Sadly, dealing with the costs associated with a deceased loved one is too much to bear for many in Port au Prince, which leads to not only a problem of dignity and humanity, but also of sanitation. Our St Luke Team provides constant compassionate care for the abandoned dead of Port au Prince in a way that is both dignified and sanitary.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Founded in 2001, the St. Luke Foundation for Haiti grew out of the programs of Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs, which Father Frechette started over 25 years ago. As the young people of NPFS programs grew into adulthood they sought to create a completely native and sustainable organization whose goal would be to propel change and progress in Haiti. This initiative became the St Luke Foundation. While the St Luke Foundation is a separate entity, there is a great deal of collaboration and shared vision and leadership between St Luke and NPFS Programs. Between the two programs we provide education to over 10,000 students annually, medical care to over 200,000 annually and employment to over 1800 permanent staff.

Providing education, medical care and dignified humanitarian outreach to the least served populations of Haiti while creating a sustainable organization comprised of Haitian leaders and zero overhead in the U.S.

To do this, we rely on the "Ambassadors" of the organization to spread the word and raise critical funds to maintain all of our programs.

The St. Luke Mission Programs include direct service and medical care to over 120,000 patients per year. These patients are seen through a coordinated network of two hospitals, two maternity clinics, two mobile disaster response units, as well as street level psychological care, outreach and social service.

As the Medical Mission of the St Luke Programs was beginning in and around Cite Soleil, a new program began to emerge. While the sick were being seen by medical staff, the St Luke team began to organize informal classes for the children in these underserved communities. Over the course of several years, these informal classes turned into high functioning, state accredited schools. With one practical and focused step at a time, our educational program began to grow, one community at a time. The St Luke School System now includes twenty-nine schools serving 8000 students ranging from elementary up to high school and professional school, with an eye towards the inauguration of a new online and language university by the end of 2012.

The St Luke Outreach Programs are comprised of a diverse set of initiatives held together by a firm belief in the importance direct aid, job creation and training, and community engagement.

Our St Luke Team provides constant compassionate care for the abandoned dead of Port au Prince in a way that is both dignified and sanitary.

After the introduction of cholera into the country and the subsequent influx of aid, we have had to cut back on some of the programs by about 40%. In 2013, we started a "Christmas Cheer" Initiative with Razoo in order to collect critical funds to keep all of our programs open and operational.
