The Amer-Haitian Bon Zami House of Hope is a major project of The George Shinn Foundation. House of Hope (HOH) is a children’s home in the Port-au-Prince suburb of Tabarre as part of the work of Amer-Haitian Bon Zami (AHBZ), Inc. Formed in 1976 to help alleviate the suffering of children in Haiti, AHBZ is a cooperative work between the Haitian and U.S. staffs. “Bon Zami” means “good friends” in Haitian Creole. The mission of AHBZ and HOH is to care for the orphaned and abandoned children of Haiti, preparing them to be well-rounded adults, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, who can provide for themselves and their impoverished nation and to establish a bond of friendship and understanding between Americans and Haitians. Working toward these goals includes providing each child with food, shelter, clothing, medical care, education, and spiritual guidance so they may become productive members of Haitian society.
