Haiti Rehabilitation Foundation (HRF) is a non-profit organization that was founded to educate Haitians who want to become Physical and Occupational Therapists. HRF provides the first and only school in Haiti with four-year degree programs in both PT and OT. With over 1 million disabled Haitians, the need for therapy services is enormous.
The program takes place at the Léogâne campus of the Episcopal University of Haiti. The programs are offered through the Department of Rehabiliation and is called UNEPH/FSRL (Université Episcopale d’Haïti / Faculté des Sciences de Réhabilitation de Léogâne).
To improve and strengthen persons with a disability, to show them that all is NOT finished with their life, that they could, as we say in Haiti, 'Move the mountain,' then they can have faith and believe this will happen.
