Our first view in early 2005 of the house that would become the Abilitation Centre.

ROOF opens the second “social hotel” for graduates of the Belskoye Ustye MHSD orphanage, ROOF’s Abilitation Centre (AC). The AC provides 5 to 6 more residential places for young adults who wish to escape the fate of the adult institution. The first “social hotel”, opened through the USAID grant, goes on to become the Pskov regional charity Rostok, which has since gone on to expand its work beyond that one social hotel, offering further educational, residential and developmental programs for the children of Belskoye Ustye.
