Devoted to Children Foundation

A fresh approach to the orphan crisis in Haiti

Our goal is to create long-term family-style homes for small groups of  orphaned and abandoned children.  Our innovative approach to improving the quality of lives of our children involves the practice of yoga and its principals for trauma relief, empowerment and health.  Our mandate involves a plan to not only help children to thrive as individuals, but to assist –  through cooperative, grass-roots efforts – the sustainable development of the communities they reside in. We want the children of Haiti to grow up as healthy beings in a healthy Haiti. 

We are happy to announce that the first D2C Family Home opened its doors on July, 24, 2012!

Devoted to Children Foundation is a registered 501(c)3. Federal Tax ID: 45-5587402.

  • Three Pronged Approach

    D2C Family Homes

    The D2C Foundation provides nurturing, long-term homes for orphaned and abandoned children. Children will not be put up for adoption but rather adopted by the D2C Family and brought up in a nurturing environment in their own communities. In addition to care, shelter, nutritious food, and clothing, the children will be provided an education to help support their future.

    Sustainable Community Development

    D2C is dedicated to sustainable community development as part of its three pronged approach. “Healthy Haiti” is aimed at improving health, environmental awareness, stewardship and the overall quality of life experienced by the D2C-Family and their respective communities.

    Children's Yoga Initiative

    The goal of this project is to help the children of Haiti to connect with their bodies, minds and spirits through yoga and meditation. These children have experienced loss, trauma and poverty in their short lifetimes. Through yoga and meditation we believe we can offer these children tools for handling the stress and burdens of their lives as well as help heal those of the past. Yoga and meditation has been proven to help children relax, focus, and get strong in their bodies. We hope to make the practices of yoga and meditation a part of the daily routine in the Cayes Jacmel Orphanage, as well as offering regular group lessons to all the local children.
