Where We Serve 2018-01-25T15:07:10+00:00


TOGETHER we implement solutions that are self-sustaining and formidable


Haiti, a beautiful island once known as the “Pearl of the Antilles”, has a remarkable past, making history as the site of the only successful slave revolution. Yet, years of economic instability, governmental failures and natural disasters have plagued its growth, and Haiti currently ranks as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Bless Back is seeking to open pathways for progress towards a strong Haiti. We partner with Mission of Hope International, a comprehensive ministry serving in the Grand Goave area of southern Haiti. Bless Back teams support a variety of initiatives being carried out on a daily basis including the MOHI K-12 schools and the full-time medical clinic. We strive to bring new knowledge and expertise through health fairs and trade school programs to build up leaders from within the community. In addition, we join the home-building and relief efforts targeted at families who have undergone major crises due to natural disasters and lack of government infrastructure. At Bless Back, we see great potential for change in the lives of our Haitian friends and our goal is to strengthen them through our long-term, focused efforts.

Nicaragua is a Central American nation known for its dramatic terrain of lakes, volcanoes and beaches. Vast Lake Managua and the iconic stratovolcano Momotombo sit north of the capital Managua. To its south is Granada, noted for its Spanish colonial architecture and a series of navigable islets rich in tropical bird life. In the midst of this natural beauty, Nicaraguans struggle with staggering unemployment, governmental failures and poor health & education. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Bless Back Worldwide teams traveling to Nicaragua work with our ministry partner, Los Rayos de Esperanza (LRdE). The LRdE compound, about 10 miles south of Granada, includes a school, clinic, business academy and a building that houses a “Mommy & me” program to educate and mentor young mothers. BBW volunteers serve in each of these areas. In addition, our teams work with local barrios to address real life needs – like providing access to clean water, building safe homes, implementing ‘rocket stove’ programs to reduce inhalation of smoke from cooking over open fires. Our trips are designed to match the needs of the community to the gifts, talents, skills, and passions of each team. Bless Back sends teams focusing on medical care, and business development, as well as project based teams who engage in children’s ministry, women’s ministry, evangelism, sports and recreation outreach, construction, and educational workshops and fairs.

While Bless Back reaches far to bring aid and support to communities in developing countries, we also recognize that there are many families in our own back yards who are in need.  Our partners at Project 658 serve the refugee community at their facility on Central Avenue in Charlotte, NC.  Here, families find assistance through education, healthcare, spiritual care, job training and other initiatives so that they are empowered to build stable, satisfying lives.  Bless Back has mobilized its medical resources to participate in monthly clinics at the Steve Smith Family Wellness Center.  Our doctors, nurses, and other volunteers come together to lovingly care for patients who might otherwise fall through the cracks of the healthcare system.
