A team of eleven builders, eight from New Jersey and three from other areas, will join forces September 24 to October 1 to continue the Center of Hope construction.

A third work team will is scheduled for October 1-8.

All of these teams will be working alongside Haitian builders under the direction of the general contractor. The goal is to pour the concrete ceiling of the first floor by the end of September, and to progress from there to laying up the concrete-block walls and adding the roof.
Dedication of the completed facility is scheduled for the end of January 2012 as a highlight of the Hope for Haiti team’s visit (January 21-February 6). The completed Center of Hope will provide classrooms for grades K-6, a health clinic, library and large meeting hall for church services, training conferences and retreats.

"Thank you to all who have given to help this vision take shape," says Yvan Pierre. “It will be beautiful to see the completion of what was started by faith. Through faith, the plans were laid. Through faith, the work is progressing and the vision is becoming a reality. We are trusting God to provide what is still needed.”
