The Home of Hope was established as a safe house to save teenage girls from traffickers. The ownership of the House was given to the Sisters’ Servants of Mary Immaculate for the sole purpose of saving orphan girls who had to leave the Orphanages at age 16. Presently there are 22 girls living at the home.
The annual Home of Hope Breakfast has been organized by the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada – Manitoba region for the past six years. Their efforts help the Sisters’ Servants of Mary Immaculate Home of Hope ministry in Lviv, Ukraine. For the past six years the event has raised a total of over $100,000. The support generated from this event helps the Sisters with the day-to-day operations of the home that ensures the girls can receive an education and develop life skills. Every story is filled with tragedy and most of those that come to the Home, experience a transformation.
