Why Gulf Coast JFCS?
For nearly 40 years, Gulf Coast JFCS has resettled Refugees from countries across the globe, including Ukraine, fleeing war and persecution. Most recently, the organization resettled hundreds of Afghan Refugees to the Tampa Bay region, assisting them with temporary housing, childcare, schools, jobs, and overall cultural integration. These same resources and support will be provided to Ukrainian Refugees designated to Gulf Coast JFCS to assist.
Refugee Assistance Fund
Gulf Coast JFCS has launched a special Refugee Assistance Fund and an Amazon Wish List to direct philanthropic contributions to help refugees settle and find safety, comfort, and happiness in their new communities. Your contributions will help fill gaps in funding immediate and essential resettling needs for all refugee families as they build their life in the United States.
