Our Purpose

Our group was launched in early March to spread awareness about the crisis in Ukraine and raise funds for Ukrainian relief efforts.

As Ukrainian refugees began to arrive in our area, we expanded our scope to include assisting hosts and refugees with identifying resources in our area (including caring volunteers) to help with their resettlement and economic independence.

Please remember: Davidson for Ukraine is not a non-profit organization with staff experienced in refugee services. We are merely volunteers seeking to supplement a host’s role and existing government agency services.

Information will be posted on this site as it becomes available. Please scroll through all the material.
