Founded in 1997 Kòt a Kòt began as a way to care for six little girls in Haiti. Our goal was to provide resources so these girls, who came from desperate situations, could be raised in a loving Haitian family and yet maintain ties to their families of origin and surrounding communities.
It is our desire to empower these girls, who are now young women,
to become independent and contributing members of their communities. Our
oldest three girls graduated from high school and attend post-secondary
programs. Our youngest three girls are in high school and have
hopes and dreams of future vocations.
Kòt a Kòt is a Haitian Creole phrase that means "side by side". Contact Marcia Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on joining us in this journey.
