Britney Gengel was a beautiful, fearless and compassionate 19 year old when she traveled to Haiti with her college, Lynn University. Upon her arrival, Britney was overwhelmed by the devastating poverty visible everywhere. Despite their living conditions, the children she met gave her so much love. She was inspired to send the following text to her mother just three hours before the earthquake:

They love us so much and everyone is so happy. They love what they have and they work so hard to get nowhere, yet they are all so appreciative. I want to move here and start an orphanage myself.

Our Home

A NOTE FROM LEN & CHERYLANN GENGEL

Brit’s Home in Grand-Goâve, Haiti was built to honor the memory of our daughter Britney Gengel, who died tragically in the 2010 earthquake in Haiti along with approximately 300,000 others. Her life and commitment to serving those less fortunate lives on as we raise the next generation of leaders in the very place she lost her life.

In just two years, amidst an earthquake-ravaged country, atop a mountain overlooking the town and Gulf of Gonave, our 19,000 square foot earthquake-proof facility was built.

Today, Brit’s Home houses our 66 children and welcomes more than 1,800 Britsionarys. We take great pride in our award winning creation. The passion, purpose and presence of Brit’s legacy lives on in the home each and every day. We invite you to join in Brit’s legacy and help us raise strong world leaders for our future.

OUR CHILDREN

Today we have 33 girls and 33 boys living and thriving at Brit’s Home. The number 33 is symbolic of the 33 days Brit was missing in the rubble at The Hotel Montana. The majority of our children are true orphans or came from such horrific conditions that we couldn’t say no. Our mission is to raise the next generation of leaders in Haiti.
