Who are we?

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." - James 1:27

We are a child refuge for abandoned and abused children left alone in the world. We seek to rescue children from the grip of despair and restore them to wholeness with love.

(Currently have 3 homes in the Vinnytsya Region of Ukraine)

Our mission is that each orphaned child that comes to a House of James home will be completely reborn into a new family and a new life filled with hope!

President / Founder - Sean Johnson

Caring for the children of Ukraine since 2003, Sean began by meeting the needs of street children until God gave him the means to build homes. Now after establishing homes in both Selyshche and Kazatin, Ukraine, Sean's vision is to expand into other areas of Ukraine and to one day build homes for orphaned children in other parts of the world.
