NPH Haiti Under the NPH umbrella, the Father Wasson Angels of Light (FWAL) program founded the St. Anne Baby House and St. Louis Child Protection Camp. These homes have been a safe haven for the displaced children from Haiti’s devastating earthquake in 2010. Today, over 170 children under age 14 receive care, education and spiritual formation in the loving tradition of “St. Helene,” our flagship facility in Kenscoff, Haiti. Many of the grown children of St. Helene now serve as caregivers and teachers to this new generation of NPH children.

La Kay se La Kay Home is the Home Raising children by strengthening families. The Fr. Wasson Angels of Light “La Kay se La Kay” Social Services Initiative aims to lift young people and their families out of desperate situations by providing educational, financial, practical and emotional support one family at a time. We currently have over 130 young people living in our St. Louis Child Protection Camp. Some of these children have no known family while others have family members living in unsafe, unsanitary, and untenable situations. The aim of this initiative is to provide supervised case management support to one family at a time, helping them to create a sustainable existence through small business, relocation, and education. Our goal is that over time, this process will enable the St. Louis older youths to re-enter family life, thus reinforcing family and community and extending the scope and power of the proposed aid.

With this new initiative, the ripples of hope and support reach farther into society and allow familial bonds to strengthen. We propose helping the family reach a safer and better life by reinforcing the talents and abilities of the family members and allowing them to reunite with their children.
