The Ukrainian Refugee Crisis Has Already Begun

Our hearts are with the people of Ukraine, many of whom are being forced to flee their homes. We deplore the tragic loss of life, enormous human suffering and destruction. We pray for their safety and for a quick resolution. New American Pathways has a long history of resettling refugees from Ukraine to Atlanta. If called upon, we are ready and able to welcome those fleeing Ukraine, once a formal response plan for supporting refugees, asylum seekers and those seeking humanitarian aid is put into effect by the United State government.

Resources and Information

New American Pathways’ Immigration Department staff can assist clients from Ukraine and elsewhere with applications for family reunification, humanitarian programs including Lautenberg AORs and asylum, and other services. The best way to reach us is during our consultation hours, every Tuesday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and noon. During that time, our waitlist link becomes active and you can sign up to get a phone call or videoconference within the following hour or two. We are also providing a limited number of in-person consultations for those who check in with the receptionist at 2300 Henderson Mill, Suite 100, Atlanta, GA 30345 during those same hours.

How You Can Help

The United Nations estimates that about 100,000 Ukrainians have already been displaced, and that number could grow to upwards of 1 million. Receiving countries include Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova. Several organizations are already on the ground delivering essential humanitarian aid by providing life saving food, water, hygiene kits and clothing to the most vulnerable in and fleeing Ukraine.

The following is a list of five verified charities working to help Ukrainians amid invasion:

CARE International

Save the Children 

International Rescue Committee
