About HR&DC

What is the Haiti Recovery and Development Company?

Founded by Jim Lange in response to the January 12, 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti, the goal of the Haiti Recovery & Development Company is to actively assist the country of Haiti and its citizens under a new model, the Government Facilitating Organization (GFO), in the creation of a “nation-centric” economic engine that achieves self-reliance for the country.

HR&DC is a for-profit limited liability company (LLC). It was established in February 2010 in Tampa, Florida. The purpose for creating a for-profit entity was to show the private sector that profit is possible in Haiti while assisting the nation and its people out of their current impoverished state. At the end of 20 years, it is HR&DC’s intention to transfer all of HR&DC’s shares in the Haiti Recovery & Development Company, LLC, into a public trust fund for the Haitian people with said trust fund being administered by a board of trustees.

The HR&DC management team brings more than 75 years of experience across a multitude of disciplines and industries. Additionally, the strategic partnerships forged by HR&DC provide critical resources across nearly every initiative called out within the Government of Haiti’s “Action Plan For National Recovery And Development Of Haiti” published in March 2010.

We commit ourselves to working day-to-day to assist Haiti and its citizens through their struggles until they reach self reliance. In short, we work to inspire a Haitian Renaissance!


  • Since its inception, HR&DC has been entirely self funded and has not accepted donations.
