TAO (That's what we call ourselves!) exists to empower orphans in Haiti, locally, and around the world by connecting our community with their communities.

Our first priority is to build long-term relationships with the staff and children we serve. We do this by taking regular trips to connect face-to-face and determine how we can best come alongside them in the work they are doing.


Our Mission

So this is who we are: A bunch of people who love Jesus, and love to serve vulnerable children at home and around the world. We want to meet the needs of the whole child as much as possible, by connecting them with the people in our community and lending our resources and gifts to do big things, a little at a time. 

Anyone who sets himself up as “religious” by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world.
— James 1:26-27 (MSG)
