The extended mission of New Life Photography is giving and sharing the love of Christ with others. It has been impressed upon our hearts to find a way to give through any success we encounter. Because of this desire, we were led to team up with Maria Atkinson, Founder of Jasper House, Haiti. New Life Photography donates 10% of all proceeds to the cause and vision of Jasper House.

In Haiti, an overwhelming majority of women have been or are currently being sexually abused. Prostitution is often a chosen life path, either by coercion from family members, or out of desperation. Girls as young as thirteen can be found on city streets selling themselves for less than $1.00 USD a night for a mere plate of rice; if they are deliberately on the street, many find themselves in bonded relationships with much older men for consistent provision of daily needs.
Upon discovering these horrific realities, missionary Maria Atkinson, who had been living in Haiti full-time since 2013, knew something had to be done.
Thus the vision for Jasper House Haiti was born.
Jasper House Haiti is a faith-based, non-profit organization focused primarily on the cultivation of healing, education, empowerment of young women in Haiti who have been faced with dangerous and vulnerable situations.
The program is designed to be a holistic approach to transitional living with the aspiration to turn oppression, misfortune, and tragedy into opportunities for empowerment and renewal. The goal is to help young women in Haiti realize their ability to rise above oppression and defeat to be the champions of change within their homes, communities, and nation.
