HOM focuses its efforts on the city and surrounding communities of Mirebalais, Haiti. Mirebalais is in the mountains, about 35 miles northeast of Port-au-Prince.
HOM is dedicated to helping these people, especially the children.
HOM was founded in 1998 after Dr. Dominique Monde-Matthews and her husband Roger visited her native land on their honeymoon, and decided that they wanted to do something to help alleviate suffering in Haiti.
Since then, our organization has grown to include six Catholic and Episcopal churches in Southeast Michigan and Montana who are officially members of HOM through their annual contribution of $4,000 in “seed money” to sustain HOM operations. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable, ecumenical, mission group.
- Corpus Christi Catholic Church, Detroit, Michigan
- Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church, Northville, Michigan
- St. Blasé Catholic Church, Sterling Heights, Michigan
- St. Clare of Assisi Episcopal, Ann Arbor, Michigan
- St. David’s Episcopal Church, Southfield, Michigan
- St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Billings, Montana
Our partners on the ground in Mirebalais are St. Louis Catholic Church, and St. Pierre Episcopal Church. With leadership from Fr. Romel Eustache of St. Louis, and Fr. Alphonse Jean Philippe of St. Pierre, we are able to effectively deliver help to areas where it is needed most.
The first effort of HOM was to provide some sort of medical assistance to areas where none was available. This initiative has grown to an annual major trip where up to 25 doctors, dentists, nurses, construction/repair persons visit Mirebalais. All travelers are responsible for their own expenses. In Mirebalais and outlying areas the team does "whatever needs to be done," including: packing and unloading supplies; transforming available spaces into mobile medical/dental clinics; seeing patients - including the occasional life saving emergency; prescribing medicines; giving fluoride treatments; providing continuing education and spiritual assistance; visiting with our Haitian friends and partners. It is a time of great camaraderie and personal reflection, and a life changing experience for everyone involved.
Each year, several of the member churches hold fundraising events for their work in Haiti, These events are open to all. Check each church's web site for exact dates.
