Uniting for Ukraine Welcome Circles

Catholic Charities' Migration and Refugees Services (MRS) is currently looking for parishes and organizations to sponsor Ukrainian families to come to the United States through the Uniting for Ukraine Program. 

Istock 13829724354

In response to the war in Ukraine, the US Government has created the Uniting for Ukraine (U4U) program. This pathway allows individual US residents to support displaced Ukrainians to come to the US and receive two years of humanitarian parole, which means they can live and work in the US for up to two years. Migration and Refugee Services is launching a new initiative to support Ukrainians -- Welcome Circles. Across the country, we hope to see Catholic parishes, other houses of worship, and local organizations meet the needs of displaced Ukrainians through collective action. Welcome Circles are groups of 5 or more adults who agree to financially support Ukrainians through the U4U program and to help them navigate their new community in the US.

For more information, please contact Heath Rosenberger at, Sarah Murphy at, or click on the button below to access a toolkit.
