Atlanta Ukrainian Evacuee Relief Assistance

Atlanta Ukrainian Evacuee Relief Assistance

At JF&CS, we have determined that assisting those evacuees who have found their way to Atlanta is something we are called to do. We appreciate the incredible response from the Atlanta Jewish community who join us in this effort. These evacuees have lost everything, and desperately need our help.

Our new program has been named AURA or Atlanta Ukrainian Evacuee Relief Assistance. If you would like to donate to this program, in collaboration with Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, please visit here, and designate funds to AURA. Your donations are greatly appreciated.

Currently, JF&CS is providing assistance for 56+ individuals and families. These individuals all have strong family ties in the Atlanta area. Many of them are currently living with family in the Gwinnett area, where there is a large percentage of Ukrainian families.

We are helping them with a variety of needs including financial, medications, vaccinations, new furniture, and rent for apartments. We are working with several area synagogues to provide additional items to these families. We are looking to build our partnerships with synagogues and temples so that congregations can help 1-2 families at a time with their needs.

Housing and Furniture

We appreciate all offers to house refugees or provide used clothing and items. We are currently not looking to house evacuees in a shared home with Atlanta residents, unless they are related. We do not have the ability to store, or pick-up used clothing or furniture at this time. If a donor can provide apartments or homes for low-cost, we would be interested in discussing this with them.

Volunteer Corps for AURA

We appreciate all of our volunteers and are looking to recruit a group of very flexible volunteers that can help with specific tasks. For example: Assisting clients with best prices for medications, helping families enroll children into schools, driving to pick up an item and bringing it to the client. All volunteers must pass a background check prior to meeting with any clients.
