Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Shelter

Housing and work are the top concerns of most Ukrainian orphans. There are times when our youth require emergency housing in order to exit an abusive or exploitative living situation. There are also times when our youth need housing while finishing a trade school or college term. Last Bell answers these needs through The Shelter, a large three-story house in the heart of Zhytomyr. Most of the residents are orphaned young women with their children.

Population(s) Served
Families

From our headquarters in the downtown area, we offer legal assistance, help with housing, medical advocacy, counseling, and humanitarian aid. The Day Center is the primary location for weekly activities in the Educational Outreach program for orphaned students, and houses our staff offices.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Our Stop The Cycle program assists orphan-parented families, especially single moms. We offer intensive monthly parenting classes, family camps in the summer, spiritual mentoring and family counseling, a childcare co-op, and help with basic needs.

Population(s) Served
Families
Young adults

Many of our youth inherit uninhabitable property, and many lack marketable skills. The Restoration Project meets both needs. Orphaned youth apprentice in the home renovation trade, learning skills under a staff foreman who provides both construction oversight and mentoring. Their work benefits fellow orphaned youth, restoring their unlivable homes. Crew members finish the program with marketable skills, and many young families have safe housing because of their work.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Educational Outreach is our primary point of connection with recent orphanage graduates. Orphaned students come to colleges and trade schools in Zhytomyr from all over the region. Our staff offers life skills right in the dorms and social dorms where those students live. These connections allow us to invite students for programs at the Day Center, receive medical or dental advocacy, and begin mentorship.
