For the mission's work there is always need for specially equipped premises (depending on their needs, health, moral status and prescribed treatment) for accommodation of people, as well as technical premises, office premises and storage facilities.
Today, the building in Odessa where the main mission office, the center for receiving and distribution of the humanitarian aid, a shelter for the elderly, people with disabilities, and a personal recovery center are located, is rented. Rent of premises available to us costs 70 000 UAH monthly. In addition, for some purposes, there is not enough space in this building, and other premises cannot be completely re-equipped to work with a certain contingent of people. Considering all this, we are working on constructing our own mission building, which will be designed with all the necessary subtleties of helping the homeless, the poor, addicted people, pensioners and women hiding from domestic violence.
Every day, homeless people come to us with requests to take them to a shelter, and often we have to deal with the sheer survival of these people. More than 110 homeless people live in our shelters in Odessa.
Today, there is an acute problem with the lack of a place to accommodate people in need. All the shelters of the New Life Mission are overcrowded.
We found a house of 400 square meters not far from Odessa, which can accommodate twice as many people.
There is also a large plot of land for a garden. We plan to raise the farm (chickens, ducks, geese, pigs). All this will not only to improve nutrition, it will also expand our scope of outbound feeding points for homeless people.
All the work in the complex, taking into account the spiritual component, will help homeless people quickly return to normal life. And many more lives will be saved we will help to change many destinies for the better.
