food security

Chronic food insecurity is a result of poverty in Haiti.   A few of the services Overture offer to alleviate malnutrition are:

  • hot lunch programs in schools

  • food distributions in low producing communities

  • solutions to meet long-term nutritional needs

secure housing

At Overture, we believe family preservation is the first step towards empowering Haitians to become independent and self-sustaining. That’s why one of our top priorities is to prevent the separation of families; because strong families result in stronger communities. If we can keep a family unit together, we’re on the right track. And building new homes is one of the many ways we strive to do this.
