Statement Regarding Crisis in Ukraine
March 23, 2022-Catholic Charities Boston continues to monitor the horrific refugee crisis due to the war in Ukraine. We are aware of the White House’s announcement that 100,000 refugees will be welcomed to the United States. As a refugee resettlement agency, we have not yet received any information about the logistics of such an effort nor have we been asked to assist by our federal or state partners at this point. As we have for more than 100 years, we stand ready to welcome refugees and migrants to Boston.
For more information, please visit our Ukraine page.
