Spencer & Risa Reeves
Haiti Directors of Operations
Spencer and Risa's involvement with Child Hope began back in 2010 when they led a team to do relief work. In 2012, the Reeves family moved to Haiti to work alongside Child Hope, where Spencer worked as Team Coordinator. After that first year, they decided to branch out and serve with Ambassadors Football hosting summer soccer camps and mid-week soccer clinics, sharing the Gospel through sport. During that time Spencer has also served the last two years on the board at Quisqueya Chapel working to help build the local church. In 2016, Risa partnered with World Vision coordinating the very first Movement Day, in Port Au Prince. Risa continues to homeschool all three children. We are so blessed to have them working with us again!
Children's Home Supervisor
Joel has been with Child Hope since 2015. He has a lengthy career working with different ministries in Haiti, including with another orphanage. He and his family are originally from Jacmel, a beach city toward the south of Haiti. He and his wife Yolene have three children. We are extremely blessed by the godly presence that Joel has brought into our children’s homes. His passion for Christ is contagious and it is a joy to see him in prayer for the kids and our staff. Joel is excited that God has called him to work with Child Hope and looks forward to what God will do in the future!
Francesca has been with Child Hope since 2013. She graduated from secondary school and is obtaining an advanced degree in Business Management from a local Haitian University. With an interest in the hospitality industry, Francesca loves to set up and organize our family parties and special events. As our office manager, she is a tremendous asset with her ability to speak English, French and Creole. You can also find her helping the kids with their homework after school. In her free time, Francesca enjoys reading, cooking, baking and spending time with her son, Jonathan.
After being connected to Child hope for several years, Christina finally got the chance to come serve with us on our first Dream Team in June 2013. It was on that trip that the Lord called her to serve with Child Hope in Haiti on a longer-term basis. She is currently serving as the Team & Volunteer Coordinator, working alongside our short-term mission teams to help them effectively complete projects. Christina writes about her experience here.
