Logos Center was established as a nonprofit charitable organization in 2003. It is led by a board of directors, and functions as a whole person care community center established by the founder, Fr.Nicolay Ilnytsky, and cofounder, Taras Moronuyk. This vision is needed very much in Ukraine. If we can help those at risk in society like the homeless and orphans, poor and elderly, understand that they need to care for themselves before they become sick, then we will have a healthier society. Of course this philosophy is holistic in its vision so there is a strong spiritual component to it as well. All that is done in the LOGOS Center now is health in some form or another. We are and will continue to prepare faith community nurses and volunteers through this center; we are and will continue to teach English to children and adults through this center, we are and will continue to feed the homeless and poor through this center, we are and will continue to help those with alcohol addiction start a new life and we are and will establish a health clinic with prophylactic health education as a primary role in its outcomes.

"I came out from Donetsk for a long weekend with my 13 year old daughter to visit with my oldest daughter who is expecting our first grandchild. My husband and mom are still in Donetsk. Shortly after we arrived to Logos where my daughter and son in law are living, they closed the roads. We can't get home and now my daughter has to go to school here. Thank God we can stay at the Logos center."
"I was quite jealous of the freedom I saw in Odessa and Kyiv. If we said anything good about Ukraine or had a flag hanging from our windows we could be shot. I'm thankful that we found this place through a friend who arrived a few days before us."
