Villa Spruceland Paraiso

Villa Redencion

Villa Trinidad

Posted on August 16, 2016

In 1997 a fire ripped through a small nearby settlement, igniting the shanties like dry kindling, leaving seventy largely Haitian families homeless and destitute.

Though the initial homes were very humble, many of the recipients used these as… Continue Reading
