Rescuing the impoverished children of Haiti.

Give Now!


Source of Life Ministries strives to provide a safe and loving environment for impoverished children rescued from the streets of Haiti’s capital city and suburbs. By providing a Christ-centered spiritual foundation, a good education, emotional support, life-sustaining food and modern conveniences in a comfortable home, it is the goal of this ministry to raise these children with a heart for their country and its people. Through the development of life skills, compassion and a drive to enact change, these children can grow to make a positive impact on the future of their nation.


It is this ministry’s vision that these children will learn to love their nation and see that they can have a good life in Haiti. We hope that they will grow and learn and be successful and that they will reach out to other children and teach them the same values. When given a proper start, they can bring about change in their country and lay a path toward prosperity.

A Word

From Our Founder

I wish to thank everyone who has visited and financially supported Source of Life Ministries; I look forward to continuing to work with you.  Without your support, I would never be able to complete the call of God to work with children and to continue to impact more lives moving forward.  We continue to need more partners to come alongside SLM;  please share your experiences and your love for this ministry with others! Every effort and every dollar given to this cause is helping to transform people for eternity! 

– Jacques Merine
