Our programs

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


After the 2010 earthquake, Project Medishare, a Miami nonprofit set up a tent hospital at the airport in Port-au-Prince. Three NAVMC teams were part of this effort helping 250 patients at any given time.

Six months later, when Project Medishare moved into Hopital Bernard Mevs (HBM), again NAVMC was there. Now Bernard Mevs is one of the most important trauma and critical care hospitals in the country.

NAVMC has given thousands of hours to set up operating rooms and provided $2M worth of desperately needed equipment to treat the injured people who flood the gates at HBM. Patients who otherwise might not receive care, are being saved.

Population(s) Served

Renmen Home for Children sustained significant damage during the earthquake, and the NAVMC team has helped them rebuild, ensuring a safe and secure facility for up to 50 orphans. With our help, Renmen can continue its 20-year history providing for Haiti’s most needy children. NAVMC supports education for Renmen residents and local children in a country that does not have a reliable public education system. Our help has led to students receiving nursing, law, and other degrees and certifications.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

For three years, NAVMC has invested $20,000 in the annual medical trip to Bolivia where our volunteer medical team performs life-changing surgeries on patients from rural areas. Our work helps them return to their jobs and to care for their families. We work with Centro Medico Humberto Parra Clinic in Palacios, Bolivia, to choose surgery candidates. We set up two operating rooms for 4 – 5 days performing an array of surgeries including hysterectomies, gall bladder removal, prolapse repairs, hernia repair, and more.

Population(s) Served

In June 2017 NAVMC helped to fund a construction project in Palacios, Bolivia. The team removed the commonly used thatch roofs in favor of corrugated metal ones. The new roofs serve to reduce the spread of Chagas Disease in the village.

Population(s) Served

Haiti has been experiencing catastrophic food insecurity. Since 2022, NAVMC's programming turned to feeding people so they have a chance to survive political instability, gang violence, inflation, and natural disasters that have affected every Haitian. Our fundraising efforts have helped 100's of starving families through partnerships with children's homes.

Population(s) Served
Ethnic and racial groups

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Last updated: 06/14/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
