About the Center


The Source of Light Center officially opened in January of 2012. Located in the Delmas 19 community of Port-au-Prince,  Source of Light is truly a place of great hope for the people of Haiti. Following the devastating earthquake in 2010, the Haiti Baptist Convention identified the need for a children’s home and school as their greatest challenge. In partnership with the Baptist World Alliance and Hungarian Baptist Aid, under the leadership of the Haiti Baptist Convention, Virginia Baptists committed to addressing this need.
