What is the HBA?

H.B.A. is a collaborative effort of the Amish Mennonite people in North America, to procure monetary resources for relief efforts in the country of Haiti.

The primary goal of H.B.A. is to supply Anabaptist faith based missions, involved in rendering spiritual and humanitarian aid to the country of Haiti, with funds needed to make these efforts a reality. With H.B.A. generating the resources, missions can stay focused on needs.

H.B.A. requires of itself, as well as the missions supported, that financial integrity and responsibility is maintained without exception. The auctions, held annually in indiana, ohio, illinois, florida, pennsylvania, and new york, are a collaborative effort of the Plain People across the U.S. as well as the community where the auctions are held. All personnel involved in any fundraising function give time, energy and other resources without any compensation whatsoever. All board members fund their own transportation to and from any H.B.A. event.

Since 1981, when the first auction was held in northern indiana, the amish mennonite communities of america have rallied to support the overwhelming spiritual and physical needs in the country of haiti. In spite of the tremendous outpouring of monetary resources, and the selfless efforts of the mission boards and their staff, there remains a plethora of needs.
