The foundation was created by the citizens of Port-Margot living in South Florida in November 2005. The members of the Board of Directors are all-volunteers, professionals, and truthful citizens. On January 12, 2007, we move to a different level by incorporating this foundation and baptized it as “Organization for the Development of Port-Margot, Inc.” (ODEP Inc.).
On July 14, 2011, we became a 501 (c)(3) Organization and Tax Exempt. We have helped and continues to help people in need. We are a non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian, philanthropic organization of Haitians and Haitian-Americans, created to protect, promote a safe environment and improve education, health and support all people in needs through integrated community efforts.
Anyone who supports the mission of the organization can be a member or a supporter. We have an open membership drive as stated in our bylaws. Our dream is to connect to all Port-Margotians, friends, and supporters around the world.
