HELP UKRAINE TO SURVIVE! Since March 2022 we are helping Ukrainian families relocate to the USA and find temporary homes, medical aid, legal aid and necessary documentations, food and supplies, psychological help and support.

By June, URRP consisted of over 150 volunteers, including 15 case workers, 35 host families, and numerous other service providers such as healthcare workers (doctors and dentists, translators, educators, and lawyers.  Currently, URRP houses and/or supports over 400 Ukrainian refugees, 85% of whom are located in South Florida and 15% in other parts of the US, including California, Louisiana, Maryland and New York.   Please see the below list of URRP emergency humanitarian aid activities to get a broader understand of the magnitude and impact of the program:
