Delmas 32 is the community we serve. It’s home to 90,000 residents and is roughly one square Kilometer.
That population density rivals the top 10 cities in the world, according to recent UN studies.
This community is one we’ve been following since the organization’s inception, in January 2010. After the earthquake, over 50% of the residents of Delmas 32 we’re displaced and forced to be homeless. Many of them lost family members, and many of them lost their homes. About 60,000 of that residency moved to the Petionville Camp, and became the community that we have worked with everyday. We’ve provided them with medical services, education, and community services. We’ve removed rubble from their streets, we’ve retrofitted and rebuilt their houses, and we’ve helped them relocated back into their homes..
These hardworking and hopeful people have become the J/P HRO family, and it’s now our mandate to continue helping them develop their community, their economy, and their future. This is the work of J/P HRO. This is Delmas 32.

Today, we mourn the loss of Mark Vallas, son of our board member and dear friend Paul Vallas. Mark volunteered in Haiti with J/P HRO in 2012, where he supported education and after school programs as well as helped repair tents in the Petionville Camp. His endless energy and enthusiasm was contagious, and the J/P HRO team felt lucky to have him as a part of the family. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
