The Cross Border House

A Virtual Visit to The Cross Border House

On Sunday, April 2, The Cross Border House will be holding a fundraiser benefit in Houston, Texas, to raise awareness and donations so that we may continue operating as a shelter for Ukrainians seeking safety from the war in Ukraine. We invite you to join us at The Jung Center Houston for recorded musical performances of the residents organized by resident Halyna Pechenizka, screenings of a documentary trailer capturing life over this past year filmed and directed by resident Yuliia Pechenizka, short-films written, directed, and filmed by resident Mariia Pechenizka-Tkachova, readings of selected resident stories by professional Houston actors, and a talk by co-director of The Cross Border House Amber Poole Kieniewicz, profiling the efforts of the Foundation and offering a unique and in-depth look into charity and service, as well as discussing how our current understanding and application of the models of sheltering can adapt to meet global need. Free event. All monies raised are exclusively for the care and support of the Ukrainian residents at The Cross Border House. Every donation will make a lasting difference.

The Sichow Educational Foundation would like to continue operating The Cross Border House for at least one more year. To do this, we need to raise the money to meet the increased demands of the property. We have extended our reach to include grant applications and are actively seeking underwriters to the project. We have leaned greatly on the compassion of our donors and their support from the very beginning, and their presence has been a daily blessing.

Our doors will close on July 1, 2023, if we are not successful with our fund drive. Not only would they close to the arrival of new refugees but also to the support and care for the Ukrainian families already here in residence. Many will face the stark choice of returning to a war-torn country, where homes have been lost or are too dangerous to return, or years of poverty in Europe while they try to re-establish themselves without support.

We ask during this time of urgency for your help, so that we may continue to care for our residents. All monies donated are exclusively for the care and support of the Ukrainians residing at The Cross Border House. Every donation, no matter the amount, will help to make a lasting difference to the lives of those at The Cross Border House. Thank you for your time and support.
