Our Vision

To improve the quality of life of Haitian-Americans in Lee County by:

  • Uniting the Haitian-American community to achieve social equity in the allocation of educational resources, health care, and job training.

The Invisible Demographic

Invisible demographic describes Lee County’s Haitian-American population. Not a single demographic question identifies this population, although an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 Haitian-Americans reside in Lee County. That is a huge number of people for a population without a voice! Since its inception in August 2015, the Haitian-American Club of Lee County, a 501 (c) (4) organization, has strived to promote social justice and human rights for Haitian-Americans. The group provides a voice for the “Invisible Demographic.”
