Tom & Judy SCHANER

Tom and Judy are the founders of Peak Partner Missions. They are both retired elementary and middle school teachers from the Orchard Park School District in New York. Tom has traveled to Haiti regularly since 2012, focusing on clean water and education. Upon Judy’s retirement in 2018 she joined him for her first visit to the New Birth School in Belot.  It was during this trip that God confirmed that this is where they would commit their time and resources.  After returning home, they formed Peak Partner Missions and have been working ever since to support the children at the New Birth School.
