Replacing the Beloved Adirondack Chairs

Throughout the day, many visitors of Joshua House can be seen sitting on the porch in the plastic Adirondack chairs where they take time to collect their thoughts, catch a sunrise or sunset, pray or even journal their stays at Joshua House.

Over time, these iconic chairs have become broken and worn and are now in need of permanent replacement.

The Joshua House is seeking to find someone who has a natural hand at construction to teach the Cap-Haitian young men and women how to build permanent wood replacement Adirondack chairs and/or benches for the Joshua House porch. The goal is not only to replace the chairs but to teach the Cap-Haitian’s children how to learn a new building skill to assist them in their future. We are also seeking donations to purchase local Haitian materials to build the chairs. Donor naming opportunities for the chairs is possible.

If you or someone you know feels a calling to help in this effort, please contact Tracy Walnoha at tracy@thejoshuahouse.org.
