was established in 1991 by Dr. Ron Pope
as part of an effort to contribute to Russia's transition from communism
to a stable and prosperous pluralist society. Building a model American
house was the first major step. The American Home, as it has come
to be known, was dedicated on July 4, 1992. It serves as Serendipity-Russia's
in-country headquarters for its highly regarded English and Intensive
Russian programs--and for a variety of other projects. From the beginning,
the American Home staff has focused on trying to make a positive difference
in the Vladimir area.

"Perhaps this is Serendipity's greatest gift - facilitating the
process by which Americans can peer into another culture, however
briefly, and come away with an alternately chilly and snug sense that
people everywhere are similar, but also very different - and in ways
that can be utterly pleasing and new."
