Sant La's mission is to empower, strengthen and stabilize South Florida's Haitian community, through access for free services and resources, to ensure its successful integration.


A self-sufficient and fully-integrated Haitian community.

Each and every day we work to attain those goals by:

  • Partnering with existing community based organizations and government agencies
  • Providing capacity-building training and staff development for community-based organizations
  • Working to strengthen neighborhood leadership and civic engagement
  • Serving as a central point of entry for neighborhood residents
  • Advocating on behalf of the Haitian community’s needs on local, state, and federal levels
  • Conducting research/evaluation of community’s needs and then making corresponding policy recommendations
  • Providing data and research on the Haitian community of South Florida
  • Conducting on-going educational outreach and providing information via radio and television
  • Providing financial literacy services, including tax preparation, for low and moderate individuals and families
