Meet the Team
Shade For Children isn't any one person.
Clinton & Lena founded Shade For Children in late 2018. Clinton had spent a significant portion of the previous 7 years serving with and partnering with several different ministries. At the end of 2017 he left the ministry he had served with for 6 years and suddenly found himself with nothing but his name on his business card.
After a lot of prayer and discussion, especially after marrying Lena in September 2018, they decided to register a Ukrainian non-profit called Shade For Children.
Clinton has an aversion to reinventing wheels. Nothing on this webpage that represents this new ministry is actually "new". Rather, Clinton and Lena want simply to replicate what they've seen work in other parts of Ukraine and with other ministries.
Shade for Children is also a registered not-for-profit organization in Mississippi, USA with 501(c)3 determination status.
