Minerve Prophil and Robespierre Chicoye earned two GSB checks in March of 2014. With their first GSB, the couple selected A Better Tomorrow Services to receive a $1,000 check for their efforts with The Alliance.
"I chose ABTS because it is a local organization that has an important role in our community," Prophil said. "They focus on the foundations needed to assist immigrant, low-income families achieve a better quality of life through teaching and developing basic skills necessary to succeed. They are helping minorities, mostly from the Caribbean, make a better life for themselves in this country. As a minority of Haitian descent, their cause is close to my heart, and I am thankful and proud of the work done by A Better Tomorrow."
A Better Tomorrow Services was established in 2006 by Emmanuel Exilhomme, a licensed clinical social worker, educator, and missionary with his wife, Sandra. Initially, ABTS set out to provide counseling and humanitarian aid in Haiti and the Caribbean, but the focus shifted to provide assistance to low-income families in Middlesex County, where Haitian immigrants are particularly underserved by social service programs, public schools and health care providers.
