Uniting for Ukraine Rogue Valley (U4URV) was started to sponsor Ukrainian refugee families (or individuals) to find homes and safety in the Rogue Valley. As of March, 2023 we have helped ten families travel and shelter here.
Our host families are our most critical resource—they provide homes for our guest families and are crucial in helping our guests navigate life here.
Our support teams assist our guest families in accessing social services, obtaining medical care, arranging transportation, providing meals, enrolling children in school, acquiring interpreters, aiding children and parents in learning English and meeting other needs.
U4URV operates under the umbrella of Ashland's Havurah Shir Hadash, a 501(c)3 organization. The Havurah helps manage charitable donations, and also provides U4URV safe, secure facilities for hosting events in support of the guest families.
