ESPWA was founded in 1998 as a traditional orphanage. Over the course of 22 years of serving vulnerable Haitian children we have learned much about best practices in child development and the difficulties faced by families in extreme poverty. As a result, ESPWA evolved from an orphanage to a child development center– to make every attempt to keep children in the most natural and supportive environment possible – the family.
