Mission: Mission 823 exists to relieve the suffering of vulnerable children in all at-risk categories. Our chief target is to provide loving families that are safe, stable and permanent for children who have been deprived of these opportunities. Our desire and commitment is that children find healing, identity, hope and a real future in a healthy family and community environment. Mission 823 engages governments, local authorities, national NGO’s, churches and international non-profits with likeminded passion to be an advocate for the voiceless. We work tirelessly to bring awareness, develop policy, implement strategies, train leaders, build brick and mortar facilities and identify resources to provide sustainable and duplicatable systems for these forgotten children.

My association with the leadership of Mission 823 goes back twenty-five plus years. I have seen nothing but professionalism, passion, and perseverance from the leadership. This organization can be trusted to deliver fact-based information and carry out the mission with integrity.
Even though Shawn and Amy have had to return to the US for safety reasons, they continue to funnel funds and aid to Ukraine during this time. Hundreds upon hundreds have already been helped and/or rescued and the number continues to grow exponentially. Their service to Ukraine is exemplary.
Mission 823 is an organization that genuinely strives to help the most vulnerable. They work very hard to be honest and transparent in all that they do. They have over 20 years experience in the country of Ukraine and working with at-risk children and communities there. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone wanting to help orphaned, abandoned, poverty-striken or displaced children, families and communities in Ukraine and Eastern Europe.
