JAM (Jesus and Me) Day Center is a project of Heritage Ukraine that ministers to children from troubled homes and their families. Our goal is to minister to the children and begin to impact them and their families in a positive way. Often children in troubled homes end up in orphanages, this center is a way to help prevent that from happening.
Consistently, fifteen to twenty children come each day from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM. They first work on their school work and after that there are a variety of many different activities. Several days a week we have a psychologist that works with them in a large group format, we teach Bible stories, play games, make crafts, take excursions to local museums, and serve a light lunch. The primary focus of each day is to build positive relationships with the children.
