CrossRoads Mission Haiti

CrossRoads Mission Haiti is a charitable, non-denominational organization founded by Jeff Swope and his wife Terri in 2012 that operates in the Western region of Haiti. CrossRoads Mission Haiti aims to find opportunities to share the love of Jesus Christ through needed projects in villages and communities in the Arcahaie area.

CrossRoads began as a home for boys coming out of an orphanage without the necessary schooling or job training to assimilate into the Haitian society. From there, CrossRoads has grown to include a church and community center, a clean water well, an adult literacy program, a yearly medical and dental clinic, two schools, and yearly vacation bible school missions.

Our current mission is to construct seven churches in 2 years. To learn more about CrossRoads, visit and follow us on Facebook.
