Community of mutual aid "Emaus-Oselya"


– Kofoed’s social centre

Kofoeds social support centre was opened in February 2008 (Vynnychenka str. 3, Vynnyky city). The same way as Kofoed’s cellar in Copenhagen this centre provides homeless living in the streets with basic needs like shower, laundry, haircut, food, first medical aid and counseling. Here they can stay for a while in safe environment, drink coffee and relax after street.

Social worker informs homeless people about social service and possibility to live and work in Oselya.

Homeless people are also involved as vendors and authors of street magazine “Prosto neba”.

Kofoeds social support centre aims not only meet basic needs of people but to be a step from street to society.
