Mountains of Hope for Haiti is a mission of the New York Conference of the United Methodist Church. We serve in Haiti at the invitation of the Methodist Church of Haiti and partner with church leadership, local communities, volunteer teams, and other organizations to promote effective and long-term development.

As Mountains of Hope we:

  • Affirm the sacred dignity and worth of every human being

  • Believe that all people have a God-given right to sufficient food, water, shelter and medical care and opportunities for education and self-sustaining employment

  • Believe that a sustained presence, and relationship, in a community is the most effective means of enacting effective change and developing a more sustainable presence and future for that community

  •  Do not so much “do” for others, but help provide the basic necessities and tools by which others can “do” for themselves.


“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture of their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom of their spirits.”
— Martin Luther King
