Tate Lowrey, MPH – Program Manager


Tate joined the Colorado Haiti Project staff in February 2013, after a year as a committed volunteer. As Program Manager for Health Programs, she supports our healthcare initiative in Petit Trou de Nippes, Haiti. Tate brings years of experience of working with refugee populations in Europe, South Africa and the United States. While working with refugees in Austin, TX, Tate focused on helping families meet immediate needs, linking them to essential resources and educating on employment readiness, health and well-being, English language and financial literacy. Tate has lived in France, where she taught English for several years and improved her French language skills – something that has proved valuable in our work in Haiti. In 2009, she moved to Cape Town, South Africa and received a Master’s in Public Health from the University of Cape Town. Subsequently, she worked as a Refugee Rights and Health Associate in South Africa, leading needs assessments in refugee camps and conducting workshops to address HIV/AIDS, and gender and xenophobic issues. Outside of working, Tate likes to go on adventures and dance.

 

 

DSC_8430Bri Morris – Director of Development


Bri has been involved with the Colorado Haiti Project since 2015 as a volunteer event coordinator. She sought out CHP because her and her husband are in the process of adopting siblings from Haiti and CHP was an important piece of connecting to the country and the culture. The longer she volunteered with CHP and the more she learned about their work, the stronger her passions grew.

When this position was brought to her attention, it seemed only natural to invest more time and energy into the work she had quickly become so passionate about. She truly believes that CHP’s partnership with the people of Petit Trou not only changes lives, but also how the world views Haiti.

As of today, she has yet to travel to Haiti, but she and her husband, both, are anxious to get in-country over the next few months and find an even deeper passion for the people and culture. They also look forward to meeting their children and sharing that journey with all of our wonderful CHP family. Please feel free to reach out to Bri if you have any questions and she looks forward to all the future holds!
