About TiKVA Children's Home: TiKVA's core mission is to rescue orphaned, abandoned, and abused Jewish children in the Odessa region of the Ukraine by providing a loving home, quality education, Jewish values, and emotional and communal support needed to prepare them for self-sufficient productive lives.
The organization has been recognized as a uniquely successful model for mainstreaming children in need, breaking the cycle of poverty while revitalizing a forgotten Jewish community.
TiKVA's work is exceptionally meaningful as many of the Jewish, once orphaned children of Odessa and its surrounding regions are now the ones leading the charge in the revival of a once vibrant community lost in the Holocaust.
