Our Story

In the summer of 2004, the members of Christian music group, Audio Adrenaline, founded the Hands and Feet Project. The Project, inspired by fan reaction to the song “Hands and Feet”, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing family-style, residential care for children in crisis.  

The organization broke ground on their first Children’s Village in Cyvadier, a small town on the Southern coast of Haiti, and began their journey of serving the forgotten children of the impoverished Caribbean nation. Now, The Hands and Feet Project has grown to include multiple locations across the southern peninsula and is also dedicated to providing sustainable solutions that fight against Haiti's orphan crisis.

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return to power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
