Uniting for Ukraine

More than five million Ukrainians have fled into neighboring eastern eurpoean countries resulting in one of the largest and fastest refugee emergencies in decades. The U.S. recently announced a refugee sponsorship program to take in refugees who fled Ukraine after the Russian invasion. Private U.S. citizens who are interested in learning more about sponsorship can find more information at www.welcome.us or check out the Uniting for Ukraine flyer for more information. 

 

UKRAINIAN DISASTER DISTRESS HELPLINE

If you need assistance to cope with unfolding events and uncertainties in Ukraine, the Disaster Distress Helpline (DDH) is the nation’s only hotline dedicated to providing year-round disaster crisis counseling. This toll-free, multilingual, crisis support service is available 24/7 to anyone in the U.S. and its territories. 

Via third-party interpretation services, the DDH (1-800-985-5990) can connect callers to crisis counselors in over 100 languages, including in Ukrainian. When calling the hotline, simply indicate what language you prefer, and the counselor will proceed to connect with an interpreter while you both stay on the line.

Callers are connected with trained and caring counselors from a network of crisis centers across the country. Helpline staff provide supportive counseling, including information on common stress reactions and healthy coping, as well as referrals to local disaster-related resources for follow-up care and support.
