Melissa Daniel Bain

FOUNDER / Executive Director

Melissa is a musician, theologian, budding writer and speaker, Enneagram 7, and wine-lover.

After years of travel with a well-established NGO, Melissa saw an opportunity to move beyond the traditional nonprofit model, and so she founded The 610 Project  to break the cycle of poverty in Haiti through education and sustainable community development.

Melissa has a Bachelor of Arts in communications from the University of North Alabama and a Master of Arts in Christian Thought from Bethel Seminary in St. Paul, MN.

Board Member

Jessica is a wife, mom of boys, photojournalist, producer, actor, graphic designer and storyteller who was born and raised in the MidWest but who’s heart is always wandering abroad.

Her exposure to worldwide poverty started in her early teenage years on her first overseas trip to Romania where she discovered her love for serving the less fortunate locally and internationally, taking her to over 13 countries to date. Jessica travels to developing nations to tell their story through photography to help non-profits continue their life-changing work around the world. This journey brought her to Haiti in 2013 and she’s excited to use her extensive experience in nonprofit work, event planning, marketing and travel to help The 610 Project continue to make a positive eternal difference.

Jessica has a Master’s Degree in Media Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations from Webster University.  And continues to be a life-learner, finding the beauty in brokenness in each new experience.
