Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been impacted by Hurricane Matthew , specifically the Haitian community. As many of you know, the death doll has risen to roughly 800. We ask that you keep the Republic of Haiti in prayers during this difficult time.

As an organization, We are accepting monetary donations that will go quickly and directly to the areas in most urgent needs.  We are also collecting goods, clothing, and supplies which will directly benefit the people of Haiti.

haiti-reliefThank you to everyone who has messaged us.  We look forward to working with you and the City of Indianapolis to help our brothers and sisters in Haiti.


In Solidarity,



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
