The Love+1 Medical Clinic opened in October 2014 in response to the untimely loss of one of our students to treatable causes. The clinic was primarily developed to assist the 500+ children in Respire Haiti Christian School as well as the 100+ Respire Haiti staff and workers. However, through the outreach services we provide, the Love +1 Medical Clinic serves approximately 2000 people. The clinic currently houses a dental room, three examination rooms, an occupational therapy room, a triage area and a pharmacy. The clinic is currently staffed by two full time Haitian nurses, a part time malnutrition program assistant, an American nurse, an American nurse practitioner, two full time Haitian rehab techs, an American occupational therapist and two Haitian counseling staff.

Respire Haiti opened our Student Recovery House in July of 2015 for students and their families as well as staff needing outpatient recovery assistance following major medical operations. Our first house has two rooms, one bathroom and a shared kitchen and dining area. We hope to build another house in the future on this property as we have a waiting list of 17+ students who are in need of surgeries ranging from hernia repair to heart surgery.
Children with special needs or those requiring restorative therapy are receiving assistance through our new on-site therapy program started in 2015. Children receive individualized attention as well as a program to follow between visits.
