Dear Parents, In this letter we’d like to share some plans of “My Home” for this year and try to improve communication with you and give you clear understanding of the person you should contact if you have this or that problem. In addition, we have an offer to share what we have with those who need it.
Dear Parents! On October 17-19, 2014, especially FOR YOU, there will be a «Family weekend» on the base of Tavria Christian Institute (Kherson).

It’s a unique combination of relaxation and effective training for couples, during which the participants will not only have a good time but will be able to feel the inner world of their second halves much deeper, set goals for next year together, learn from the positive experience of other families, as well as renew their relationship.
Based on decision of the Supervisory Board of “My Home” Charity Foundation, Andrei Somov is appointed as Project Manager of “Kherson Regional Charity Foundation “My Home” starting with July 1, 2014.
