FJN's 3-LEGS/LDC Program Was Endorsed By

Parish Twinning Program Of The Americas

For Its Haitian Impact

And Its Significant Enhancement To Parish Twinning


The FJN 3-Legs Program/LDCs have been endorsed by the Parish Twinning Program of the Americas.


“Father Joseph is a bold spirit with tenacity and determination,” noted Theresa Patterson, Co-Founder and Executive Director of PTPA. “...he inspires people to work together to create change in their community. So many extraordinary enterprises have already sprung forth from his endeavors.”


This assessment and PTPA’s endorsement stand in contrast to what typically occurs in developing nations, according to Patterson, “I’ve seen so many groups establish a project in these communities, but the local people have no organization to sustain the efforts after the groups leave, so they often fail.”


The Parish Twinning Program of the Americas has developed working relationships between some 300 Catholic parishes in the United States and an equal number of counterpart parishes throughout much of rural Haiti. 


In January 2017,  an agreement was reached between PTPA and the Raising Haiti Foundation to  introduce the Three Legs initiative/LDCs to rural Haitian communities with existing robust, long-standing twinning relationships.



Most twinned communities would agree that the three components of the Father Joseph Network's 3-Legs  initiative (Local Development Committees, Economic Development Resources and Human Resource Enablement) when applied in combination, offer the best possible way forward to move their communities toward economic viability and greater sustainability
