We remain committed to making a difference in the United States by providing the cultural awareness and sensitivity vital in the management of the nation's diverse workforce, and abroad by building a strong network of Haitian professionals and like-minded organizations to help rebuild Haiti. 
 
The Joseph Denis Thomas Foundation is dedicated to entrusting the Haitian people to reverse the economic, environmental, health and social effects of deforestation, loss of agriculture, and lack of water system management. Through higher education opportunities, and with strong partnerships and collaboration, the Foundation works towards increased engagement in the development and conservation of natural resources for the benefit of the community.
