The Cross Border House is asanctuary for the Ukrainianresidents in which they canreclaim their sense ofhuman dignity, hope andoptimism.
The Cross Border House offers a residential program for Ukrainians living in exile. We uphold as our model of service a high standard of holistic care and support. The Cross Border House evolved out of the Sichów Educational Foundation, located in southeastern Poland, in a historic manor home once owned by the Radziwiłł family, now owned by their grandson Stefan Dunin-Wąsowicz. The Foundation was established seven years ago as a center for religious workshops and cultural events.
One of the unexpected surprises from living together over the past six months is the awareness that we have become a new community which leans one on the other for support, friendship and counsel. We celebrate our birthdays as a family, we learn from each other, we cook together, and we commiserate each other’s losses. Since the start of the war, The Cross Border House has sheltered between thirty-five and forty-two residents and at present maintains a household of forty.
