Serving the children of Foyer de Sion is a life changing experience that will fill your heart with a new sense of joy and meaning. There are many ways to support the children from your own home, as an on-site volunteer in Haiti, or as a member of our Board. We rely on volunteers to plan and execute projects, to train and support our caregivers, to help us keep our facilities and equipment running, to collect and deliver needed supplies, and to carry out fundraising events. If you have a particular skill, talent, or high level of enthusiasm for serving the children of Foyer de Sion, we would like to hear from you.

VOLUNTEER FROM HOME

You don't have to travel to Haiti to make a huge difference in the lives of the children of Foyer de Sion. More than anything, we need compassionate and motivated people right here in the US to help us raise awareness about the plight of the orphans we care for — some of the most vulnerable children in the world. If you feel compelled to serve, we want to hear from you regardless of your background and professional experience. Just a few ways that you could help out include: 

♡    Helping us develop relationships with corporations and other nonprofits

♡    Spreading the word through social media, marketing, or event planning

    Even just having a lemonade stand this weekend

    Hosting a fundraiser dinner

    Designing and managing projects from afar

   Getting your local community, temple, or church involved

VOLUNTEER IN HAITI

The board members of Foyer de Sion lead volunteer trips to Haiti approximately four times per year and are always looking for people willing to travel to Haiti to help us push forward on-going projects and to assist and train our local staff.  For volunteers interested in project-based work, our current needs include: 

For volunteers interested in working directly with the children and the caregivers, typical daily activities include: 

    Infant care (feeding, walking, even simply holding)

    Arts & crafts with the older children

    Recreation (jump rope, basketball, hand ball games, teaching other games)

♡    Compiling child updates (photos, measurements etc. for adoptive parents and record keeping)

♡    Medical screenings (on trips that include medical personnel as volunteers) 

♡    File keeping and organization

    General construction skills (including painting, carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work)

    Landscaping & gardening

    Auto repair

 

 

 

The children benefit greatly from the extra interaction, stimulation, games, and companionship and the caregivers very much appreciate the helping hand. Additional information about traveling to Haiti and volunteering at the orphanage is available here
