About Our Founder

​Ellen Humerickhouse was 19 when she felt the call to follow GOD but wasn’t sure where HE wanted her to serve. After missionary trips to various inner cities in the US, as well as Uganda, Ethiopia, and Mexico she went on a trip to Arcahaie, Haiti which changed her life. Haiti is still struggling to recover after the 2010 earthquake which killed tens of thousands of people, and left many more homeless and destitute. However, Ellen's heart was touched by the fact that people who live in shacks, have little or no food and get their drinking water from a ditch still know how to share the love of Jesus Christ. There is so much need in Haiti which Ellen didn’t know what she, as one person, could do but she knew she had to do something. So, in the fall of 2013 after much prayer GOD provided a vision to Ellen. With that encouragement she bought some land in the village of Guiton to build a children's home. La Limyè (The Light) is a Christ-centered children's home for orphaned girls of any age. The goal is to take them out of the circle of poverty, feed and nurture them, teach them a trade that they can use to support themselves as adults, and show them the love of Christ. Ellen wants to make a difference in these girls’ lives so they can grow up happy, healthy, and strong in their Christian faith. Along with the children's home, La Limyè will be used as a community center for the local adults. The goal will be to offer basic literacy and life skills classes, give them access to clean water, and most importantly to teach them about the love of Christ. La Limyè is also providing vital jobs in a community desperately needing them. Some of the people on staff came to La Limyè in desperation, and are now able to care for their children and families at home.
