ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – A new website was launched this week to help Ukrainian people and their allies in New York.
This follows Governor Kathy Hochul’s warning to consumers about scams and cybersecurity threats amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“Ukraine’s resilience against Vladimir Putin’s tyranny is an inspiration to the rest of the world, and many New Yorkers are already doing their part to support humanitarian efforts,” Governor Hochul said. “In moments like these, New Yorkers always stand together to support those in need. We are proud to provide trusted resources for those who want to lend a helping hand for our Ukrainian brothers and sisters here in New York.”
Resources will include the following,
- Access to free legal support including asylum applications and deportation defense through its network of legal service providers
- English language courses through its network of Opportunity Centers
- Access to mental health support groups through its Golden Door Program
- Workforce readiness tools including resume writing, digital literacy skills, and credentialing evaluation
