Crisis In Ukraine

JCFS Chicago is devastated by the events unfolding in Ukraine. Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people, and with those in our community who are working resolutely to get family and friends to safety.

Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable expedite refugee applications or petitions to bring family members to the United States. If you have not yet filed a family petition and would like to begin that process, please call HIAS Immigration & Citizenship to schedule an appointment: 312 357 4666. Please note that this is not an emergency response as this process is likely to take months or years.

We will continue to update our website as we lean more. Please check back for updates.

JCFS Чикаго потрясён событиями, разворачивающимися в Украине. Наши мысли с украинским народом и с теми в нашем сообществе, кто работает для  обеспечения безопасности семьи и друзей.

К сожалению, в настоящее время мы не можем ускорить рассмотрение заявлений о предоставлении статуса беженца или петиций, чтобы перевезти членов семьи в Соединенные Штаты. Если вы еще не подали семейную петицию и хотели бы начать этот процесс, позвоните в отдел иммиграции и гражданства HIAS, чтобы назначить встречу по тел: 312 357 4666. Обратите внимание, что это не экстренное реагирование, поскольку этот процесс, вероятно, займет месяцы или годы.

Мы продолжим обновлять наш веб-сайт размещать на нём необходимую информацию.

Пожалуйста, следите за обновлениями.
