Welcome to the Haiti Partnership!
Since 1995, the Haiti Partnership of the Susquehanna and Upper New York Annual Conferences has been sending volunteer mission teams to Haiti to build schools and churches, to provide humanitarian aid, and to do God's work along side the Haitian people. So much has been accomplished and so many lives have been changed. But there's still so much left to do.
Men, women, and youth age 17 and older are invited to join the Haiti Partnership as a mission team member. This year, we are sending six teams and over 55 Volunteers in Mission, many of whom are traveling to Haiti for the first time. Each volunteer raises $1,400 for their expenses, and the Helping Haiti Heal Offering received by local churches helps pay for project costs and other ministries.
For more information about becoming a Volunteer in Mission (VIM) volunteer, click on the links at left, or email Jodi Crimmel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local churches are invited to participate in the Haiti Partnership by providing financial assistance, or by making school bags, hygiene kits, and birthing kits. Check out the links for more information.
Is God calling you to serve the people of Haiti?

We are very grateful to Barry and Diana Watkins for sponsoring a new FIRST TIMERS' SCHOLARSHIP for Volunteers in Mission going to Haiti. Through their generosity, many first time volunteers will receive help with their travel expense cost. Since 100% of all donations to the Haiti Partnership go directly to helping our brothers and sisters in Haiti, all volunteers are responsible for their own travel costs. We cannot thank Barry and Diana enough for their involvement and this generous continuing gift.
PLEASE NOTE: All checks for VIM team members for trip expenses should be made payable to "Upper New York Conference" (and please spell out "New York").
The Haiti Partnership needs van drivers to shuttle our mission teams to and from the airport in New York City.
