Youth Empowerment Support Service HAC-US


The Haitian American Caucus (HAC) is a coalition movement to improve the lives of the Haitian-American community and their allies. HAC’s mission is to set a platform from which to empower communities of Haitian Americans in New York City.

HAC LogoFounded in 2009, the Haitian American Caucus (HAC) is one of the leading civic organizations for the Haitian community in the New York City area. From education to healthcare, HAC works to improve the lives of the Haitian community at large in the hopes of changing negative perceptions of Haitians that have been perpetuated for years. 


HAC-Haiti promotes sustainable development in Haiti that eliminates extreme poverty through providing opportunities for education, health and economic self-sufficiency.
