Sponsor Circle Program for Ukrainians

Register here to attend an info session on June 10, 17, or 24 to learn more about this program.

Through Uniting for Ukraine, Ukrainians can come to the United States for a temporary period of two years with the support of a sponsor who agrees to provide them financial support for the duration of their stay in the United States, as well offer them support with such tasks as securing initial housing, enrolling children to school, and finding employment. 

Sponsors make this commitment through the submission of an I-134, Declaration of Financial Support. It is the US government that determines if the sponsorship will be approved and the beneficiary will be permitted to travel to the United States. It is anticipated that sponsorship will be most intensive in the first six months. 

During this time, sponsors who form sponsor circles through the SCPU will have access to resources and ongoing support.
