Hands Together U.S. Office
Doug Campbell - Executive Director
Doug Campbell began working in Haiti in 1986 when he accompanied Fr. Tom Hagan, OSFS, on a Lafayette College volunteer mission. Soon after, Doug joined Fr. Tom in creating a the Catholic lay mission outreach program, Hands Together which serves the poorest of the poor in Haiti - particularly in Port-au-Prince's slums of Cite Soleil and the poor rural villages in the Diocese of Gonaives, Haiti.
Doug splits his time between running the U.S. office in Chicopee, MA and working alongside Fr. Tom Hagan to oversee many Catholic mission outreach programs for the very poor. Their work among the violence and poverty in Haiti is founded upon the Catholic social teachings of the dignity of human life and a preferential option for the poor. Hands Together embraces a clear ethic of life based on God's infinite and absolute love for us. About one-third of Hands Together's mission work supports educational, health, charity and developmental projects in the Diocese of Gonaives where more than 1 million live in abject poverty.
Doug holds a BA from Lafayette College in Easton, PA and a Masters Degree in Human Services from Springfield College in Springfield, MA.

Snapshot of U.S. Office
For many, many years the staff of Hands Together’s U.S. office was the honored guest of Sacred Heart Church in Springfield, MA. Father Farland, a lifelong friend, was a gracious host and insisted we use their facility rent-free (he would regularly turn away our rent check). We are so grateful for his kindness for all of these years. We recently relocated our office to Chicopee to accommodate a bit bigger staff and increased growth. Of note - Even though our office location has changed our mailing address remains the same for your correspondence: PO Box 80985, Springfield, MA 01138
