Our Model

HEI is a recognized and award-winning leader providing accessible, compassionate, high-quality quality health and support services. We have a consistent track record for getting the job done and making a sustainable impact for the people and communities we serve. Our community-led approach ensures that the organization’s initiatives and operations are culturally appropriate, empowering, and responsive to the priorities of the service recipients.

Our Haiti-based healthcare programs and our US-based Shelter and Stabilization projects both utilize integrative service delivery models to provide timely, sustainable services to the populations we serve.

In Haiti, our model combines community health programs in remote villages with specialized clinical care at our referral hospital. Our complementary system of care provides access to basic and preventative services in a large, remote, mountainous area. It also ensures patients with serious and complex cases get advanced care regardless of their ability to pay.

In the US, our model combines safe, dignified emergency housing with comprehensive wraparound services that help migrant families rebuild their lives and gain their footing in their new surroundings. Our dynamic team help each family navigate the complexities of housing, employment, immigration, healthcare, and other essential essential services they need to become independent, self-sufficient, and productive members of their new communities.
