Крок 1.
Для новоприбулих українців


Step 1.
For Ukrainian newcomers


Якщо ви прибули з України по програмі CUAET та потребуєте тимчасове житло,

зробіть Крок 1 - заповніть нашу форму реєстрації (Форма прийому для українських сімей). Тільки після заповнення форми ми з вами звяжемося щодо пошуку необхідного житла.


If you have arrived from Ukraine under the CUAET program and need temporary accommodation, take Step 1 - fill out our registration form (Intake Form for Ukrainian Families). Only after completing the form, we will contact you regarding the search for the necessary accommodation.

Donate Financially

The owners of the facility, Karen and Bob, are amazing people who are offering space (for reduced rent) and helping to coordinate the settlement of the families.

We want to ensure all families have a safe place to live even if they can't afford it. We are fundraising to offset the cost of rent partially or fully.


Volunteering at Hillside is just one of the many ways you can make a difference. We currently need assistance with coordinating donations, fundraising and ensuring we have enough people to help with the settlement of Ukrainian guests. (transportation to employment or appointments, helping to find employment, advocating for ensure they are connected with various Regional/provincial services)

Donate Furniture

We are in need of 2 single-sized box springs, alarm clocks, hangers, towels... and many other items to make the space feel more like home. 

We have limited storage space so we can only accept the items specifically needed. 

Build Community Support

We believe strongly that in order to ensure these families get off on the right foot they need to feel like they belong. We are looking for volunteers to help build connections within the Maryhill community. This may look like potlucks, or outdoor activities, or opportunities for the youth to get to know each other.
