PHA is "Being Family"
PHA is completely Dedicated to serving vulnerable youth in Ukraine
“It’s impossible to take a girl that is twelve years old, put your arm around her and say ‘In five years you will be on the street, you will probably be a prostitute, you will be dying of aids, and I don’t care.’ You can’t do that. Those words just won’t come out. So rather than criticizing the person who makes bad choices we thought it was best to offer good choices.”
Dr. David Vanderpool, PHA Board Emeritus
PHA's transition Program
— Pre-Graduation Mentoring
Our Ukrainian ministry partners are offering pre-graduation mentoring and outreach to develop relationships with kids before they leave the orphanage.
— Domik, Our Day Centers
Domik translates to “home-like” or “nice home”. The older orphans who come to Domik are provided with meals, a wholesome place to hang out with friends, shower and laundry facilities, hands-on daily life skills, legal help, much-needed resources, spiritual guidance and fellowship, a learning center with tutoring, and a place of safety and refuge
— Summer Camps
Our Summer camps are a special time for the vulnerable youth PHA serves, where they can connect with each other as well as American and Ukrainian volunteers. With Bible and life lessons, activities, arts and crafts, and a wide variety of fun and games. Camp is a highlight for many in the PHA family.
— Family Homes
PHA provides housing to serve orphans and others in need. Some stay on an ongoing basis while attending trade or technical school, others stay for a short term as they receive help during a temporary crisis, and others are simply there on weekends and holidays while still attending school at an orphanage. Family Homes serve as places for weekends, holidays, meals, mentorship, and refuge.
— Bible Lessons
In everything we do we seek to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Our Ukrainian ministry partners have bible lessons with the kids who come to Domik as well as lead studies with older orphans and hosting worship and prayer meetings.
— Humanitarian Aid
Ukraine is a country of approximately 45.5 million people. With an average annual income of less than $3,000, a struggling economy, and a warlike environment in the East, there are many opportunities for Christians to help.
PHA is a faith-based organization providing humanitarian aid in the form of medical supplies, medicine, food, clothing, and refugee support to those in need in Ukraine.
