In 1979 the Detroit Regional Council of the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America formed the Ukrainian Village Corporation. In October of 1984 the first residents moved into the 145 room senior living facility. For the next 20 years the Village remained much the same as when the first residents moved in. Numerous awards were given in recognition of the exemplary manor the facility was maintained.
In 2002 Congress approved a bill which would allow us to take a major step forward in the improving the facility as well as the life style of the residents of the Village. This commenced the journey to what would be the future of the Ukrainian Village and its residents
We now offer our residents a superior housing facility and also the means to enrich their physical and intellectual well being. The board of directors of the Ukrainian Village welcomes you to see the fruit that was born of the trees that were planted as seeds 30 years ago.

Ukrainian National Flower
The sunflower has become a global symbol of solidarity. It has been used as a symbol of peace for Ukraine throughout history.
In 1996, it was used to mark Ukraine's nuclear weapon disarmament with its planting at the Pervonmaysk missile base.
It is seen across the globe today as a sign of support for Ukraine. You can see this in the sunflower being held up alone or on signs, adorning sunflower pins, wearing a crown made of sunflowers, and even entire outfits made of sunflowers. Ukraine's fields are filled with golden light as they face the sunrise and the new day.
