Our Vision

To be a voice for a people forgotten.

 
 

We want to make a positive difference in the life of each person we encounter. Since we began in 2003, we have impacted the lives of more then 100,000 people.  We are thankful to God and our faithful partners who have supported our vision over the years. We could not do this without them.  Now, we invite you to explore and discover for yourself that ordinary people like us can do extraordinary things when we work together toward a common goal. 

Island Impact Ministries is a U.S. registered, 501(c) non-profit organization established in 2003 and dedicated to providing much-needed medical, educational, spiritual, and construction assistance to the people of the Dominican Republic and Haiti. These goals are accomplished through our local medical clinics, and hosting visiting teams. 

Medical teams provide mobile clinics in remote locations, or offer free surgeries, vital medicines and supplies to people who need it most. Construction teams focus on projects to improve and repair schools, clinics, hospitals and orphanages.

Rob and Kelli Nelson (who is a Nurse Practitioner) have over 35 years of experience working on the Island of Hispaniola both in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, in social welfare programs and in the healthcare system of those countries! There are a myriad of ways for you to get involved - explore the website to see how you can partner with us to help change the world and make a difference!
