Who We Are
Friends of Fontaine is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting community-based development in Fontaine, Haiti. In 2011, Christ Our Light Catholic Church in Loudonville, New York established a committee to oversee the parish's commitment to build and help operate a school in Fontaine, a rural village in Haiti. Since then, other parishes, colleges, and organizations have joined our Friends of Fontaine family and continues support for our mission. In 2013, the committee was restructured and became a 501(c)(3) tax exempt Foundation. Today that school has become St. Gabriel's School in Fontaine. St. Gabriel's continues to be a strong resource in the community and through it, we are building and creating change through education and outreach.
