ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to bring the sustaining and empowering structure of family to the orphans of the world through care, prevention, and stewardship.

OUR MODEL

With over 160 million orphans worldwide, it’s evident there is an orphan crisis. What has been ignored is the fact that over 80% of these children, have a mother or father alive somewhere. Instead of addressing the symptom, i’mME is focused on addressing the root of problem – Ending the Orphan Cycle through family.

Job Creation, Education, and Family Preservation are the cornerstones of our mission. Instead of mothers and fathers placing their children in institutions, we seek to provide jobs so these parents are able to keep their kids.

Education is a powerful weapon to combat poverty and oppression, and we are committed to implementing enriching and creative environments on the ground. We believe in the power of family, and we devoted to strengthening, re-unifying, and developing the family structure.

We are focused on a long-term investment by partnering with locals on the ground. All of our programs and efforts will be run indigenously, with the mindset of empowerment and sustainability.

Parents want to keep their kids, but often face the difficult choice of keeping them or be able to feed themselves. We exist to be that alternative, and be a vessel of hope, opportunity, and value for families everywhere.

OUR STORY

i’mME was founded by three brothers, David, Daniel and Patrick Nelson, and is currently being operated by Patrick and his wife Lauren. Patrick and Lauren Nelson met in Haiti where they rescued 9 orphan children from a trafficking organization in Port Au Prince. They lived in Haiti for two years raising the kids, training up local Haitian staff and Directors, and establishing i’mME’s operations on the ground.

They fell in love and decided to get married in September of 2015. They moved from Haiti to Dallas where they now reside running the ministry from the states. They now have two beautiful sons, Dash and Roman, who they bring to Haiti with them very often.
