Pastor Sonja Dickherber visited this area while helping with a dental clinic on a short-term mission trip in 1994. Walking through the streets of Anse-A-Galets (“on-SOG-ah-LAY”) on the island of LaGonave, she was struck by the hopelessness of the people there, and knew that God was calling her to do something to help. With much prayer, after spending a year in Anse-A-Galets, Sonja and her husband Jerry incorporated Celebrate Jesus of Haiti, Inc. as a 501C3 organization with the mission to improve the lives of the people there on three levels: Spirit, Soul and Body. They made the decision to pay their own expenses and to receive no salary or airfare reimbursements for their work. Only Haitians who are chosen to do certain jobs receive a salary from the mission. This very unusual arrangement means that virtually everything that’s given to the ministry is spent to improve the lives of the Haitian people.

Church World Service was born in 1946, in the aftermath of World War II. Seventeen denominations came together to form an agency “to do in partnership what none of us could hope to do as well alone.” The mission: Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, comfort the aged, shelter the homeless.
More than 70 years later the mission remains, though where and how we accomplish it has changed dramatically.
In 1946-47, U.S. churches opened their hearts and provided more than 11 million pounds of food, clothing, and medical supplies to war-torn Europe and Asia. Protestants and Catholics pooled talent and resources to meet a staggering refugee crisis. Today the Immigration and Refugee Program of CWS is a vital, internationally-recognized operation, having resettled nearly half a million refugees since its inception.

The Colorado Haiti Project has been working with community leaders in the rural town of Petit Trou de Nippes for over 28 years, supporting community-driven programs in education, community health, water and hygiene, girls’ and women’s empowerment, and agriculture. We provide resources to Haitian leaders, building bridges from the U.S. to Haiti that provide vital support for local vision and leadership.
The Colorado Haiti Project was founded in 1989 by three Episcopal priests: Haitian Father Octave LaFontant and Coloradans Fathers Dayle Casey and Father Ed Morgan. Over time, we have transitioned from direct service missions to a strong emphasis on local leadership. Today, our work reaches a broad audience both within and outside of the Colorado and Haitian Episcopal communities. Our work is not specific to one faith and does not advance a particular religious ideology.
