What efforts were undertaken to make up the losses?

When this serious situation was recognized, a number of options were explored in an attempt to rectify the situation.  The number of residents was not likely to increase enough to break even, given the condition of the facility.  Other uses for part of the building were considered while continuing to operate the OPH.  Other similar facilities were visited to gain ideas about how the OPH could be improved. An attempt was made to cut costs without a decline in service.  Other ways to supplement OPH income were explored.  Advertisements were placed on Russian-language television.  Pleas for donations were made to ROCOR parishes and the FFA.  Huge donations would be needed annually to collect sufficient funds, but the response to the fundraising campaign was insignificant.
