There are 95,000 children who are orphaned in Ukraine.
Each year, 15,000 children age out of Ukrainian orphanages. Without support, many fall victim to suicide, abuse and addition, homelessness, prostitution and criminal activity.
26,671 orphans who age out in Ukraine have no safe place to call home. Transitional housing is nearly impossible to find, and homes provided to those young adults by the government or as part of an inheritance are often unlivable.
Orphan Outreach responds to the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children in Ukraine in 3 ways:
We offer tangible hope by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of children who have been removed from abuse or neglect and placed in the orphanage system.
We provide safe, nurturing support for young adults as they leave the orphanage system and navigate the transition to independent living.
We provide Christ-centered therapeutic support for young adults with special needs.
Our Ministry Programs
The Aging Out Initiative in Ukraine focuses on the holistic care of young adults who have aged out of traditional residential care in Dnipro. These young adults face an unsure future, and without wraparound support are at high risk of falling victim to criminal activity, drug abuse, sexual exploitation and trafficking, and suicide. Staff and volunteers provide physical, spiritual, emotional, and educational support to help those young adults make a healthy transition to independent life.
