Approximately 15,000 youth between the ages of 16-18 will graduate or age out of the orphanage system each year in Russia. About one thousand such youth age out in the Nizhny Novgorod region yearly.

The Harbor-Nizhny's transitional housing program will provide a home for 4 emancipated orphans for a 2-3 year period of time. During this time, the residents will receive guidance in acquiring a higher education, job skills, and basic life skills through the guidance of mentors. Additionally, spiritual mentors will provide training in moral and ethical matters. Trained psychologists will help residents cope with their unique issues in both individual and group sessions.

Target date for launching The Harbor-Nizhny - September, 2014.

The Harbor-Nizhny is a project of the Fory Charitable Trust, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
