Armée du Salut (AS)
Business Name
Long Business Description

En pleine révolution industrielle, à la fin du XIXè siècle, le pasteur William Booth est choqué par les conditions de vie indignes du monde ouvrier notamment dans l’Est de Londres. Il va créer en 1865 ce qui allait devenir en 1878 l’Armée du Salut pour répondre aux besoins matériels et spirituels des plus démunis. Aux femmes et aux hommes vivant dans des conditions de vie et de détresse révoltantes, William Booth propose d’assouvir leurs aspirations spirituelles et besoins matériels.

Le pasteur, en quête d’efficacité, s’inspire du modèle militaire pour structurer une « armée » afin de répondre aux besoins élémentaires et de redonner des conditions de vie décentes aux plus démunis, conditions nécessaires pour qu’ils puissent trouver Dieu. Une triple mission résumée dans sa devise “Soup, Soap, Salvation” !

Seize ans plus tard, une femme franchit la Manche pour porter la mission de l’Armée du Salut en France. Nous sommes en 1881 et elle se nomme Catherine Booth. Dans le sillage de son père, elle veut “veut sauver les âmes et secourir les êtres”. Avec l’aide des jeunes officières qui l’accompagnent elle va réussir sa mission et faire ainsi de la France le premier pays d’Europe où l’Armée du Salut s’implante.

Entre 1914 et 1918, l’Armée du Salut crée des “Foyers du soldat” pour venir en aide aux aux soldats, aux veuves et aux orphelins de la Première Guerre mondiale, ses actions lui permettront d’être reconnue et appréciée en France. Dans les deux décennies qui suivent la Grande Guerre, l’oeuvre de l’Armée du Salut se développe notamment sous l’impulsion du couple Albin et Blanche Peyron.

Des années 1920 aux années 1930, plusieurs grands établissements de l’Armée du Salut sont construits comme le Palais de la Femme, la Cité de Refuge, Le Palais du Peuple, la Résidence Catherine Booth.

En 1931, l’Association des Oeuvres Françaises de Bienfaisance de l’Armée du Salut (AOFBAS), reconnue d’utilité publique, est créée ce qui permet à l’Armée du Salut de recevoir des dons et legs et de les affecter aux projets en cours. La même année, les premières Soupes de nuit sont distribuées dans les rues de Paris.

Durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, l’Armée du Salut et l’AOFBAS sont dissoutes par les autorités de Vichy. Mais le travail se poursuit jusqu’à la Libération, sous couvert de la Fédération protestante de France et de la Communauté des Diaconesses de Reuilly.

A l’issue du second conflit mondial, l’Armée du Salut relance son activité notamment en faveur de la jeunesse. Elle développe des actions pédagogiques, met en place des maisons d’enfants et des centres d’apprentissage. Des partenariats avec les pouvoirs publics et les acteurs du champ social voient le jour. Membre fondateur de la Banque Alimentaire, en 1984, l’Armée du Salut participe aux dispositifs de lutte contre les exclusions, organise et gère des structures d’accueil d’urgence et crée des logements sociaux.

En 1994, pour distinguer la gestion de l’action sociale et celle de l’oeuvre d’évangélisation, l’Armée du Salut adopte de nouveaux statuts. La Congrégation de l’Armée du Salut, qui regroupe l’ensemble des officiers poursuit la mission spirituelle et évangélique. Tandis que l’AOFBAS gère les établissements à caractère social.

Center of Hope Haiti Inc
Long Business Description

Center of Hope (Haiti) is the fulfillment of the vision of Emmanuel St. Juste. Emmanuel was born in Hinche, Haiti, where his parents raised five boys and five girls amid abject poverty. Emmanuel was trained in the ministry in Haiti and came to Stamford, Connecticut, in 1974, where he formed the French Speaking Baptist Church of Stamford.

Emmanuel visited Haiti every year where he witnessed worsening poverty and deprivation, especially the growing number of orphaned children. The AIDS epidemic left hundreds of thousands of Haitian children with no moms, no dads, no home and no one to support them. Many of the children “live” in the cemeteries. Emmanuel comments, “The Lord opened my eyes to see the misery of those hopeless children and He brought into my heart the idea of giving some hope to those children.”

Emmanuel brought his vision to build an orphanage in Hinche, Haiti, to his congregation and they enthusiastically embraced it. The congregation began by collecting one extra dollar from each member each Sunday to buy the land on which to build an orphanage. Emmanuel shared his vision with many organizations, including its long-time missions partner, Wilton Baptist Church of Wilton, Connecticut.

Haiti Marycare Inc
Business Name
Long Business Description

Haiti Marycare (HM,Inc) is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in the early 1990s by Tom and Mary Lou Larkin, Rev. Joseph Dorcin and Sherman Malone. Sherman, a social worker with experience in Haiti first invited Mary Lou to accompany her on a humanitarian visit to Jacquesyl, in the northeast corridor of the island.

Mary Lou was appalled to discover that women in Haiti were delivering babies at home on dirt floors and machetes were being used to cut umbilical cords. As a result, there was a high rate of infant mortality and maternal deaths related to infections from childbirth.

That moment inspired Mary Lou to make a difference. She returned to Connecticut, consulted with medical colleagues and devised simple, hygienic birthing kits in Ziplock bags to help pregnant women in Haiti. These kits consisted of a new razor blade, a piece of string to tie off the umbilical cord, a bar of soap, a cotton receiving blanket, alcohol swabs and a pair of gloves. Since the delivery of these kits to Jacquesyl, starting in 1999, there have been no deaths related to childbirth. Over the years, the kits have developed and now include an eco-friendly, Haitian-made re-reusable diaper.

Today, HMI supports healthcare, community and education in the towns of Jacquesyl, a small fishing community, and Pilette in the foothills of the mountains. Neither communities had access to healthcare or education before Haiti Marycare was founded in 2001.
