In 2007 St Vincent de Paul Church of Rogers established a Mission of Hope with St Francis of Assisi Church in Bombardopolis, Haiti. The goals of the mission are:

 

(1) Pray for the people of Haiti. 

(2) Advance social justice formation for the people of SVDP. 

(3) Provide educational support for the children of Haiti. 

(4) Establish SVDP team to oversee the ministry

 

Through the generous support of the SVDP parishioners 2,500 students attend classes in fourteen elementary schools grades K-6, and one high school grades 7-12. Each school provides children with one meal per day and school supplies are furnished annually. Classrooms are furnished with chairs and desks, and teachers salaries are paid monthly. Computers have been supplied to some classes.
