Pilgrim Home for Children dates back to 2000, when Pastor Gennady, his wife Elena, and other members of his congregation began delivering food to children who were addicted to drugs and alcohol and infected by HIV. As time passed, the church grew more passionate about the children’s plight and offered them shelter in an abandoned building, which they later purchased and remodeled into a home.
This unique ministry is devoted to rescuing the lost children of the Ukraine who live unloved and unprotected in city manholes, basements, and rank underground sewer tunnels. It is considered the largest alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation center in the country and is continually rescuing the youth of the Ukraine from futures of addiction. To date, more than 2,700 adolescents have passed through its programs. Please help Pilgrim Home continue its important work.
