Supported living home “MyroDim”

Our Vission

We believe in a world where anyone with a learning disability can live within their community with all the choice and support they need to live the best life possible.

Our Mission

Our mission is to work in partnership to achieve the best outcomes for the people we support.

Our Dream

We dream of integrating children with disabilities into society, showing them God’s love and purpose for them, helping them find a job and have the highest quality of life possible for them.

As of 2015, according to the reports of the heads of institutions, 91410 out of 99915 children brought up in institutions have various developmental or health disorders.
These are children with intellectual disabilities, hearing, vision, speech impairment, psychoneurological diseases and more. As of 2020, there are 17,258 children with disabilities in Ukraine (18%) in institutions of which 2046 are children with severe disabilities (2%)

 

10,000 of kids with special needs will stay in the boarding school forever, or after 35 years they will be transferred to neurological institutions and nursing homes.
Every child is dear in the eyes of God and has the right to feel loved.

We are building house of supported residence “MyroDim” where they will be able to live in the society, not limited limited by a fence, learn literacy and crafts, receive medical and social care, complete a course of social adaptation, receive and learn from one another to provide spiritual, emotional and physical support.

We have support of pastors and the church community, a team of like-minded people who perceive this work as a mission, plot of land with buildings, working shed, garage and a room, house…

A family from Almaz church donated a piece of land – almost an acre just outside Kyiv (capital of Ukraine) for our ministry. After much prayers we see that God wants us to  use it in a new sphere in Ukraine – building assisted living homes. In Ukraine fate of orphans with special needs is very tragic – at the age of 35, even with minor disabilities they get transferred to awful institutions for elderly with special needs.

We dream of integrating them into society, showing them God’s love and purpose for them, helping them find a job and have the highest quality of life possible for them.
We will tell you more about this home in the next newsletter, some preview, of what already has been happening.
Ukraine is going through what USA has been going through 30-40 years ago, when group homes were just starting and big institutions were closing down, and we believe that church should be at forefront of this, pioneers in this sphere in Ukraine, and we need your prayers so much.
We are very thankful of this opportunity, because
CHILDREN SHOULDN’T”T LIVE IN INSTITUTIONS.

We are passionate about what we do, and use our unique understanding of the challenges facing the people we support to speak up with them to bring about positive change.

 

To provide high quality care and support through the provision of individualised care and support packages within our residential and supported living services (specialised and ordinary accommodation settings).

  • Individuals can say what they expect and need from our service

 

The aim of our services is to enhance the quality of life and well-being of our service users, enable and achieve the best outcomes, provide good value for money for our purchasers, and ensure effective and proactive support for people with complex needs within our supported living arrangements and the wider community environments.

We recognise that to achieve these objectives we must make efficient utilisation of our resources and maintain a proper and reasonable balance among our obligations to our various stakeholders, including our service users and their families/significant others, purchasers/commissioners, employees and the community at large. These obligations include:

  • Provide training, supervision and mentorship to enhance career opportunities.
  • Create a participative environment for setting goals, seeking their input, and encouraging individual responsibility and accountability.
  • Satisfy their individual needs for recognition, rewards, self-esteem and personal growth.

With respect to our Communities:

  • Conduct our operations in an ethical manner.
  • Deliver services that help address identified community needs in health and social services.

Praying for a miracle.

Honestly, right now, it seems almost impossible for us to achieve our goal.

But we know, that with God all things are possible!

We firmly believe, that we should rescue the kids of the fate of living in big institutions, with much suffering and abuse, and no chance of life, except living in rooms, doing nothing, and just quietly expecting their death.

Our orphans, that we affectionately call “kids”, even though some of them are turning 30, deserve so much more!

We pray, that all of this could be possible and ask for your help.

We found some volunteers for the project now – designer, architect, God has given us land, and we believe, that God will provide the rest.

Each contribution will help us move one step closer to our goal.


We ask you to pray with us, to fast with us, to tell others about this project, and to support us in this project!
