UCSS is dedicated to helping those who are unable to help themselves.

 As a non-profit, charitable organization, UCSS responds to the needs and interests of both the Ukrainian Community as a whole and individuals through its wide range of services.

These services include:

 aid to the poor and needy;

 providing assistance to senior citizens and new immigrants;

 counseling and advice assistance;

 referral and information center;

 translation service;

 aid in sponsorship of refugees;

 aid in immigration procedures;

 help with Canadian Citizenship application;

 aid overseas;

 liaison with various governmental and other social service agencies.

UCSS is not just another organization; it is you and us, the Ukrainian Canadian Community, helping those in need.  Without your help, we will not be able to carry out our programs.
