Welcome Ukrainians!

The Uniting for Ukraine program has brought many Ukrainians to the Seattle area and our office is working hard to help them feel welcome. Sponsors in the area are welcoming family and friends and helping them navigate the US systems to obtain work permits, cash and food assistance. For those who need extra help, our office is able to connect clients with resources, such as rental assistance while they’re waiting for their EAD cards.

One of our contractors, Vita, came to the US with her family from Ukraine in March. She started out as a volunteer to help with our growing Uniting for Ukraine program. As Svitlana says, “She helps with anything we ask,” and does so with a big smile. After seeing her hard work, we were able to hire her to help us regularly. In her spare time, she attends ESL at Highline College. After she learns enough English, she hopes to study to become a lawyer since that’s what she practiced in Ukraine. She has experience in civil courts in a variety of areas including family and housing law. We appreciate all of her help and wish her the best in her continuing education!
