A social family can have no more than six children.
Yes, they are. Living at the Centre is no different from living in actual families. The children go to kindergartens, regular schools, and various classes and hobby groups in our neighbourhood. They may leave the Centre’s premises to see their friends or have friends come over to the Centre.
Social parents are officially married husband and wife hired to live with the foster children. Usually, one of the parents will be employed by the Centre as a social mom or dad and the other may be working at the Centre part-time.
Children are placed at the Centre by order of Kyiv’s district child care services.
The Centre’s operations and activities are currently made possible by the comprehensive support that we receive at different levels. Among those providing their support are the Ukrainian government, corporations, foundations, and numerous private individuals.
This may vary depending on each child’s specific situation. However, the children may not stay after the age of 18. If our alumni enroll in a vocational school or higher education institution, their stay at the Centre may be extended for the duration of the study but not after the age of 23.
Yes, definitely. The services are provided in partnership with the local district pediatric clinic. The children are given biannual medical examinations.

The Our Kids Centre is a one-of-a-kind social care institution. Our efforts are aimed at helping orphans, children deprived of parental care, and children facing vulnerabilities by providing complete social rehabilitation. We are also involved in the reform of the social, cultural, and legal frameworks for the development of future generations of Ukrainians.
Additionally, our organisation’s goal and philosophy are to preserve the environment. The energy-efficient Centre is the first of its kind in Ukraine. It is utilising state-of-the-art technology which allows us to use renewable energy sources.
