Hesed House: helping others stand on their feet

Born with the spirit of empowering the less fortunate, bestowed with the vision of retired Archbishop Emeritus Joseph Harris, and blessed with a title that bespeaks its work, Hesed House is a humanitarian organisation in Trinidad.

Hesed’ is a Hebrew word which translates to love, mercy, grace and kindness––these known to be “the Lord’s most treasured characteristics”.Hesed House is dedicated to providing assistance to those afflicted by the socioeconomic impacts of poverty, including those who are victims of natural disasters.

Hesed House in Port of Spain was launched by Archbishop Harris in 2016, with his vision that “the T&T organisation can reach parishes and communities with a service that extends to assisting already-established charitable groups or organisations, here and within the Caribbean”.
