How to help

The St. Sophia’s Social House is a non-governmental, non-profit organization for people with severe multiple developmental disorders. The existence of The Domik is possible only with the support of caring people.

It is important to understand that we are the only ones to be responsible the quality of life of our fosterlings: food, purchase of clothes, medicines, consumables, ensuring the round-the-clock presence of tutors and much more – those are daily and necessary items of expenditures. Like any family, we want to have confidence in the future. That is why regular help and donations are so important for us. We cannot allow our kids to return to the system of state stationary institutions because of the lack of funds!

Become a sponsor

We all were children! Each our fosterling will grow up too. But they would hardly be able to become completely independent due to the severity of the existing disorders, they will only pass into the category of people with disabilities over 18, without a family, with all consequent difficulties of employment and ensuring a decent standard of quality of life. It is vital for our special children that even after the age of majority close people remained beside them, ready to help and support, to give a sense of stability and security. That is why we are already looking for reliable people who are ready to share the responsibility with us, for the kids to have confidence in the future! Contact us and we will find the best cooperation option together.
