Shepherd's House Orphanage Project
Shepherd's House is a project committed to providing a better life for Haiti’s orphans and street children. In cooperation with Shepherd’s House Ministries, Global Promise is committed to helping as many children as we can by bringing them off of the streets and teaching them the skills necessary to lift them out of poverty and into a bright future.
The Shepherd’s House Ministries was founded by Aaron Nelson. Aaron is originally from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Adopted by two missionaries, Terry and Cary Nelson who have been working there since early 80s. Aaron believes he is called of the Lord to open orphanages in Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.
