Cazeau Christian Orphanage Sonya and Jean Toussaint have served as house parents since 2003 and do an outstanding job in managing and providing loving care for the children. Many of the youth that have graduated from this facility have become local leaders and are having a positive influence on the lives of others.
Thomazeau Christian Orphanage In January 2012, HFHC opened Phase I of the Thomazeau Orphanage. The facilities include a boys’ and girls’ dorm and staff housing. As of January 2015, the orphanage is home to twelve wonderfully active children who keep Natacha Pierre, our orphanage administrator and primary caregiver, extremely busy! She understands the needs of these children, since Natacha herself was orphaned at age three and grew up living in HFHC’s Cazeau orphanage.
