Providing essential support to Ukrainian and Israeli families 

Since March 2022 we've been dedicated to assisting Ukrainian refugee families affected by the war, whether they arrived in the US or remained in the Ukraine. 


Now, we have extended our mission to include support for Israelis.

Our comprehensive program encompasses everything from finding temporary homes in the US; providing medical and dental aid, legal assistance and necessary documentation, to offering food, supplies, and crucial psychological support.  Learn more below.

What We Do.....

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:
