The Avanse Healing Center

Located in the Delmas region of Port-au-Prince, the Avanse Healing Center provides daily support to children living and working on the street. Here, they can wash themselves, eat, receive treatment for wounds or illness, play, and participate in education and cultural activities. Avanse has on-site social workers to learn more about children coming through our center. Children in need of education and a safe place to sleep are profiled according to our VAST protocol in order to match them with a boarding school that offers education, nutritious meals and a safe bed at night. This is the first dynamic step to their reintegration.
