Ukraine Assistance in Memphis, TN
We are excited that Stephanie has been gifted a generous $5000 to get the Ukrainian House underway!
This program has been created to offer Ukrainians movement and healing sessions on an ongoing basis. It is our intent to provide a space to deepen a sense of peace within so that they may feel comforted and supported despite the war occurring in their home country.
There are over 100 people from Ukraine currently living in Memphis, TN. There are approximately 12 Ukrainian families staying at St. Jude on medical visa for care for their ill children.

Please contact us today to help us reach our goal and help support our sisters and brothers!

- Group yoga classes (1 hour)
