Support Information for Ukraine Arrivals
Catholic Charities is not eligible to serve as a sponsor. For individuals who wish to sponsor family or friends living in Ukraine, please visit the federal government website https://www.dhs.gov/ukraine or “Uniting for Ukraine” for the requirements to become a sponsor.
For community organizations that would like to explore becoming a sponsor, please see below in our “Ways to Help” section.
There are many scams, so we encourage you to only obtain information from sites like https://welcome.us or sites from the US government that end in “.gov”
We are happy to assess the eligibility for support for individuals who have already arrived in the United States and are in need of cash assistance or benefits. Please email UKRsupport@ccab.org and include your name, a phone number, and a short description of what you need.
