The Haitian Association of Indiana (HAI) started with the simple vision of a few Haitians who wanted to have a platform for Haitians in Indiana to unite in order to share the culture of the homeland. Since its creation in 2008 the organization grew to become an association of Haitians working together to serve the Haitian community in Indiana who are in need of various services. The association also fosters working relationships with individuals and organizations with interests in Haiti and serves as a hub for cultural and historical learnings.

The Haitian Association of Indiana (HAI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
