Helping Ukrainian Refugees

Thanks to the support of the Town of Palm Beach United Way, we are expanding our refugee services to specifically help Ukrainian refugees. A new grant from the United Way Ukraine Refugee Fund allows us to hire an additional Ukrainian speaking Case Manager for one year as well as offer emergency support to meet their needs. 

“We greatly appreciate Catholic Charities’ commitment to serve Ukrainian refugees in our community,” said Beth Walton, CEO of the Town of Palm Beach United Way. “These families in crisis need somewhere to turn when they arrive in Palm Beach County, and now they have dedicated professionals who can help them navigate the social services system.”

The Town of Palm Beach United Way Ukraine Refugee Fund was created in March of this year to support Ukrainian refugees impacted by war. More than 7 million Ukrainians have fled their country since the war begin in February, according to the U.N.  Many are coming to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Palm Beach for assistance with employment services, transportation, housing, emergency assistance, and social and economic adjustment to their new community.

Catholic Charities partners, through monthly touch-base meetings, with the local Jewish Federation and Jewish Family Services to exchange resources to meet the needs of this - predominately Jewish, population. Catholic Charities serves all people in need, regardless of religion. This funding, coupled with funding provided through the United States Council of Catholic Bishops - allows Catholic Charities to serve these vulnerable refugees.

Our mission is to serve people in need in all stages of life, with a vision to achieve a community of self-sufficient individuals healthy in mind, body, and spirit. Catholic Charities helps newly arrived refugees, asylees, paroles, and victims of human trafficking from many countries to resettle and meet self-sufficiency.
