Patrick's Kids Foundation (“PKF”) was founded in memoriam of Patrick Jacques (Pat). Pat lived a life that was anchored in empowering family members, friends and acquaintances to achieve their full potential. He focused his energy helping others climb the socioeconomic ladder by helping people obtain employment, get the best education possible, and connect with the drivers of economic and social empowerment.
Near the end of his life, Pat intended to mentor a Haitian child, but never got the chance to do so. Upon his passing, PKF vowed to keep Pat’s charitable spirit alive by fulfilling his wish to give back to Haitian children.
PKF leverages technology and partnerships in the community to help talented children and young adults obtain a quality education and become catalysts of change in the country.
