Brit's Home

Shortly after sending the text, a catastrophic 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, killing an estimated 300,000 people, including Britney. Her family could not let her die in vain. In loving memory they started the Be Like Brit Foundation, Inc. During the course of two years, a 19,000 square foot earthquake-proof, non-adoptive orphanage was built in Grand Goave, Haiti — the town where Brit was supposed to travel to the day after the earthquake.

Our Children

Today we have 33 girls and 33 boys living and thriving at Brit's Home. The number 33 is symbolic of the 33 days Brit was missing in the rubble at The Hotel Montana. The majority of our children are true orphans or came from such horrific conditions that we couldn't say no. Our mission is to raise the next generation of leaders in Haiti.

Meet Brit's Kids

Visit Haiti

We call those who visit Brit's Home in Haiti, Britsionarys. We offer a one-week trip that focuses on building and rebuilding homes in the local community of Grand Goave. Britsionary groups also spend time with our children working in enrichment programs right at Brit's Home. Even if you are not able to travel to Brit's Home in Haiti, there are other ways to help.

We Wrote a Book

Inspirational Book

Heartache and Hope in Haiti : The Britney Gengel Story was written by her parents, Len & Cherylann Gengel. It is an account of the tragedy and triumph the Gengel family experienced in 2010 following the earthquake in Haiti in 2010. In the book, Brit's parents describe Brit, her trip, her family's experience and the building of Brit's Home. The book will make you cry; the book will make you laugh; and it will, we hope, inspire you to "Be Like Brit!!!"
