Support Jacob's Well Haiti

On July 2011, I traveled to Haiti for the first time. Little did I know, during this trip, my own life and the future of Jacob’s Well would change forever. It didn’t take long before I saw what everyone sees: the poverty, the hurt, the endless needs. But I also saw the potential. The potential for community development through education and job creation.
We didn’t just want to throw money at a problem, but wanted to truly invest in a community. We wanted to know the people and to stay for the long haul. That is the heartbeat of Jacob’s well.
— Mark Thornton, Executive Director


Jacob’s Well is answering the call to continue our work in Montrouis, Haiti.

This next chapter will include owning land and building a sustainable restaurant and boutique dedicated to job creation and skill training for the local community. We believe in empowerment through employment. Job creation means orphan prevention, improved quality of life, and an investment in the community. Jacob’s Well Restaurant and Boutique will celebrate the Haitian culture and embrace the talents of its people by selling the food and art of the locals. We ask you to be a part of this dream by donating, praying, and sharing this need with others.

Our fundraising goal is $250,000!  Will you help? 



Jacob’s Well is devoted to working with individuals, churches, and community organizations in an effort to connect people in need with resources and skills which will improve their quality of life both physically and spiritually. The vision of Jacob’s Well Haiti is led by God and put in motion by indigenous leadership. We are sensitive to His guidance in all we do. Regarding our neighborhood in Montrouis and how we interact, we believe in the principles of education and community development.
