solving problems. uplifting lives.

As of May 21, 2022, Congress passed a $40B Ukraine aid package, which (among other things) will make Ukrainian arrivals under the Unite for Ukraine Program eligible for federal benefits like cash assistance, food stamps (SNAP) and health insurance, and also make them eligible for JFS Programs! Since the release of this information on May 25th, JFS has formally enrolled 52 Ukrainian individuals and has appointments to enroll more. We are ensuring all families have access to community services, legal assistance, and benefits. We look forward to helping these families through ESL programs, job search services, and to help furnish apartments when housing is secured.
