" Our mission is to help those who suffer poverty in the Dominican Republic by assisting with clothing, food, school supplies and hygiene kits. By involving local citizens in our humanitarian efforts we are helping empower them to create a better future for people in their country. Our capital projects include building schools and homes. Our long term goal is to be able to employ local Dominicans to run our operations there." - Louise Zobell
ZoBell’s life has changed. She and her husband Jack have learned much from her experiences. Her dream to “focus on helping people help themselves” thrives in Puerta Plata and in its people. Her cry to her friends and others is simple: “Look for ways to help that will make a lasting difference.”
Like Louise and Jack ZoBell, our mission is to assist poverty stricken Dominicans and their children by providing the resources needed to help lift families out of poverty.
We admire the work Louise and Jack are doing and want to assist in any way we can. Indeed, their Dominican Starfish Foundation was the inspiration for our own nonprofit organization for giving.
By partnering with Dominican Starfish USA, your contributions can help change the future for many poor Dominican and Haitian children by providing families with the tools required to lift themselves out of poverty; such as a good education, English lessons, school meals, and school supplies. You can help sponsor a child for as little as $25 per month.
