Otchiy Dim (Father’s House) is a charitable organization that responds to the needs of orphans and children at risk in Ukraine. They run a series of programs designed to create a path to societal integration for children of all ages. Built on the principles of family life and human dignity, their integrated system of sophisticated rehabilitation techniques is adaptable to the needs of each and every individual in their care. They believe that their child-based and family-oriented care model is the key to overcoming the societal challenges faced by disadvantaged children in Ukraine. To help a parentless child is to restore a generation, unlock the future, and influence history.
     Since they began in 1966, Father’s House has changed the lives of more than 3,000 children. They are now a leading example of the process of de-institutionalization being carried out in Ukraine.
