For Haiti, with Love, inc. is a Florida not-for-profit corporation, incorporated in 1982 and governed by a 7-member Board of Directors:
Don DeHart, Founder (Born 1935, Passed Away 2006)
Made his first trip to Haiti in the winter of 1968-69, left his heart there and has gone back since that time to do what he could. Don's background was in civil engineering, he took prelaw in college as well as having ongoing paramedic and medical training. God equipped him to go from building a home, to digging the hole for the latrine, to building a road up Beck Mountain, and changing hats to treating emergencies through FHL's 24-hour emergency medical clinic. He was the "front line" person of For Haiti, with Love. While road building in his "other life" Don also completed seminary and pastored small country churches on weekends, he loved to share God's love.
Eva DeHart, Cofounder and President-Secretary-Treasurer
Background includes many years as a legal secretary after completing college with an accounting major. Eva handles the office in Florida, procuring for the field, coordinating team mission trips, fundraising, government paper requirements and helps with the annual "Christmas in August Fundraiser" as well as the Christmas party in Haiti, while raising their adopted Haitian daughter who came to the U.S. in 1993 for surgery at Shriners Children's Hospital then lost her Haitian mother. Roseline received her education in medical and returned to Haiti to oversee the Headquaraters after the death of her adopted father and manage the 24/7 emergency medical clinic.
Roseline DeHart, Vice President over Haiti Operations,
graduated from Palm Harbor University High School in 2004. In addition to graduating with honors, she also earned her C.N.A. during this time. Roseline has spent every summer working beside her adoptive father, Don DeHart in the clinic and on construction job sites. She took over the Haiti responsibilities in September 2005 when Don's battle with cancer got too serious for him to travel. She has overseen the program since his death in 2006. She married Racine Présumé who is a full time Haitian National Police officer and spends all of his free time working with For Haiti with Love.

No longer able to make the trips, Dr. Dennis still stays in touch and supports this Lord's work with his prayers and contacts.

She worked on building and painting school desks and benches on her first trip; on her second trip she served food and passed out gifts at the Christmas party and learned how to do laundry on a wash board and hang clothes on a line. Peggy is very instrumental in the success of the annual fundraiser dinner/auction "Christmas in August," is our Ambassador to her church and always available for support and consultation when asked.
