The International Institute of New England (IINE) has resettled a small number of Ukrainian refugees in recent years and is preparing with our communities to welcome more individuals and families should the U.S. government begin to accept refugees from Ukraine.
Currently, IINE provides legal services to Ukrainians in the U.S. who want to apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). For Ukrainians abroad fleeing their homeland, IINE’s immigration legal services team can assist with family-based cases, employment-based cases, or any other immigration benefit for which they are eligible.
