How to Help Ukrainians in Our Region

Offers of Housing/Hosting and Employment:

QUIS is working with the OCASI Donation portal for offers of housing and employment for Ukrainians. If you want to host a family or offer employment in our region, please see the following link to the portal. Once you have contacted the portal, that information will then be received by Quinte Immigration Services and we will direct you to the appropriate service to work with you on your offer.

Settlement.org Donation portal: https://sites.google.com/ocasi.org/odp/en


You can also contact Ukrainian Diaspora Support Canada for hosting and finding a host family: https://www.uadsc.org/


Physical and Financial Donations:

QUIS is unable to accept physical donations due to space and capacity limitations. We recommend reaching out to local non-profit thrift stores or Facebook groups created to share resources with individuals and families in need. 

QUIS is accepting financial donations to cover interpreting and translation services for Ukrainians. These services are not covered by any government funders and can become quite costly for individuals.

Donations can be sent by cheque to Unit 2, 345 College Street East, Belleville, ON, K8N 5S7. Cheques should be made out to ‘Quinte Immigration Services’ and you can note ‘for Ukrainian interpretation fund’ in the memo. 

Donations over $20.00 are eligible for a tax receipt, please include your name or organization’s name and a return address along with your donation.

If you are willing to donate gift cards or vouchers (with no expiry date) for clothing, food, pharmacies or transportation, please send your donation to:

Settlement.org donation portal at: https://sites.google.com/ocasi.org/odp/en
