Description

Introduction to Healing Art Missions

The vision of Healing Art Missions is for every Haitian to have access to the fundamental human rights of healthcare, education, employment, and clean drinking water. With successful programs in three rural Haitian communities, Healing Art Missions has a direct and positive impact on the health and wellbeing of thousands of Haitians.

Founded in 1998, Healing Art Missions, a secular non-governmental humanitarian organization, has developed a proven model to offer hope for the country’s future: a respectful, long-term collaboration with its Haitian partners. Haitian staff are the backbone of Healing Art Missions’ operations. Thanks to generous donor support, Healing Art Missions funds community-operated programs in the Haitian communities of Dumay, Demier, and Port-de-Paix.

  • The flagship program is a community health clinic opened in 2000 to serve the population of Dumay.
  • Healing Art Missions operates two clean water projects in Haiti to ensure affordable access to safe water.
  • Since 2010, Healing Art Missions has supported the Charles Salomon Primary School in Port-de-Paix, on Haiti’s north coast.
  • Healing Art Missions also supports several other initiatives, including funding a social and criminal justice organization in Croix-des-Bouquet.

The Opportunity

A labor of love by its founder and core volunteers for over two decades, Healing Art Missions is in a strong financial position and is seeking its first Executive Director to sustain and advance its mission of hope.

The role of the administrative team in the U.S. is to secure the resources needed by Healing Art Missions’ Haitian staff to fulfill the organization’s mission. The incoming Executive Director will be an advocate, spokesperson, fundraiser, and partner with Healing Art Missions’ Haitian staff.

The incoming Executive Director will be based in the U.S. and will work collaboratively with staff in Haiti and with partner organizations, government agencies, volunteers, and others to advance the vision of Healing Art Missions. This multifaceted role, the first paid U.S. staff position in Healing Art Missions’ history, is a terrific opportunity to build an organization with the support of passionate founders and a strong nucleus of board members.

As U.S. operations lead, you will have a direct positive impact on the lives of Haitians and their communities. As a spokesperson, you will also play an important role as an advocate for Haitians, championing their fundamental human rights and ensuring they are not forgotten by their global neighbors. As a fundraiser, you will represent the organization and its Haitian partners, share the impact of Healing Art Missions’ work, and secure funding to sustain and advance the range of projects in Haiti. As an ambassador, you will help bring medical missions to Haiti and foster an exchange of skills and knowledge that benefits all participants.
