Birth of Artists Village: Devastation & Extreme Poverty

In 2004 after major floods devastated the town of Gonaives, followed by mudslides that destroyed the humble towns of Mapou and Fond Verrettes, Haiti, in the hopes of simply helping those in need after these natural disasters, a college student and her single working mom founded Artists Village, Inc.

A simple dream between a mother and daughter became their vision and this vision became a life long mission. Today this mission is a reality.
