Military Child Education Coalition Resources to Support Ukrainian Military Children & Their Families

As the situation on the ground in Ukraine continues to evolve, and military families deal with potential deployments, we are reminded of the many uncertainties military-connected children experience as a part of the military lifestyle. We are also reminded of the stress and insecurity that can accompany such unpredictable circumstances.

For 24 years, MCEC® has worked to establish programs and resources for parents, educators, and students to help them navigate unique challenges associated with the military lifestyle. Programs like our Student 2 Student® peer-to-peer support system, parent workshops, and professional development for educators all work together to more effectively respond to the unique emotional needs of military children.

MCEC® is also answering the call from our allies. Upon a request from the National Association of Ukrainian Psychologists, seeking resources for serving military families, the American Psychological Association and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences reached out to MCEC®.

We responded with the tools listed below, which, we believe, can be immediately helpful to families during these extremely trying times.

A one-on-one English program for Ukrainian Youth

ENGin pairs English learners with volunteers from around the world to conduct weekly online speaking sessions. Every learner and volunteer is screened to ensure their fit for the program. Participants are then matched based on preferences, interests, and availability to ensure an effective and mutually enjoyable communication experience.

Stand with Ukraine

 

WE STAND WITH UKRAINE: Please contact us if your or anyone you know is at risk of domestic/sexual violence or you want to know more about services in Oregon in Russian and Ukrainian.

МЫ ПОДДЕРЖИВАЕМ УКРАИНУ: Напишите нам, если вы или ваши знакомые пострадали от домашнего/сексуального насилия или вы хотели бы получить информацию о социальных программах в Орегоне на русском или украинском языках.

МИ ПІДТРИМУЄМО УКРАЇНУ: Напишіть нам, якщо ви або ваші знайомі постраждали від домашнього/сексуального насильства або ви хотіли б отримати інформацію про соціальні програми в Орегоні російською або українською мовами.

Supporting the Slavic-speaking population

Slavic Oregon Social Services (formerly ROSS) was established by Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) in 1994 to serve the needs of Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants. More than 100,000 Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants from the former Soviet Union currently reside in the Portland metro area, and the numbers are expected to increase. Census figures show that no other place in the nation has had more of an influx from the former Soviet Union than the Pacific Northwest. Oregon is number two in the nation for Slavic-speaking newcomers.

Our Services

> Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services:
Our services include crisis intervention, long-term case management, individualized resource planning/referrals, advocacy, assistance obtaining protective orders and communication with law enforcement, emotional support, mental health counseling, safety planning, assistance accessing low-cost / free legal services, assistance with temporary / transitional housing, short-term financial assistance and support groups.

Other programs may become available in the future; call us or check our website for updates.

Our mission is to successfully integrate Slavic-speaking immigrants and refugees into Oregon and southwest Washington communities by providing services that increase independence, enable economic self-sufficiency, and improve mental and physical well-being. We are currently the only agency that works exclusively with the Slavic-speaking population in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Marion Counties in Oregon, and Clark County in southwest Washington.

Slavic Oregon Social Services has been fulfilling its mission in many different areas. Strong partnerships with local social services agencies, victim service and healthcare providers, and government agencies have been a great asset in pursuing our goals. Our experienced bilingual and bicultural staff is another invaluable asset, allowing us to identify and meet the needs of the Slavic-speaking population. Strong working relationships with the Slavic-speaking community that we have been forging since 1994 enable us to build high levels of mutuality, respect and trust, and provide culturally-appropriate and language-specific services that have a meaningful impact.

All our services are free and confidential.

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Slavic Oregon Social Services operates its program, services and activities in compliance with federal nondiscrimination laws. No person shall, on the basis of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), disability, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any of our programs.

As the situation on the ground in Ukraine continues to evolve, and military families deal with potential deployments, we are reminded of the many uncertainties military-connected children experience as a part of the military lifestyle. We are also reminded of the stress and insecurity that can accompany such unpredictable circumstances.

For 24 years, MCEC® has worked to establish programs and resources for parents, educators, and students to help them navigate unique challenges associated with the military lifestyle. Programs like our Student 2 Student® peer-to-peer support system, parent workshops, and professional development for educators all work together to more effectively respond to the unique emotional needs of military children.

MCEC® is also answering the call from our allies. Upon a request from the National Association of Ukrainian Psychologists, seeking resources for serving military families, the American Psychological Association and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences reached out to MCEC®.

We responded with the tools listed below, which, we believe, can be immediately helpful to families during these extremely trying times.

Supporting the Slavic-speaking population

Slavic Oregon Social Services (formerly ROSS) was established by Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) in 1994 to serve the needs of Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants. More than 100,000 Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants from the former Soviet Union currently reside in the Portland metro area, and the numbers are expected to increase. Census figures show that no other place in the nation has had more of an influx from the former Soviet Union than the Pacific Northwest. Oregon is number two in the nation for Slavic-speaking newcomers.

Our Services

> Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services:
Our services include crisis intervention, long-term case management, individualized resource planning/referrals, advocacy, assistance obtaining protective orders and communication with law enforcement, emotional support, mental health counseling, safety planning, assistance accessing low-cost / free legal services, assistance with temporary / transitional housing, short-term financial assistance and support groups.

Other programs may become available in the future; call us or check our website for updates.

Our mission is to successfully integrate Slavic-speaking immigrants and refugees into Oregon and southwest Washington communities by providing services that increase independence, enable economic self-sufficiency, and improve mental and physical well-being. We are currently the only agency that works exclusively with the Slavic-speaking population in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Marion Counties in Oregon, and Clark County in southwest Washington.

Slavic Oregon Social Services has been fulfilling its mission in many different areas. Strong partnerships with local social services agencies, victim service and healthcare providers, and government agencies have been a great asset in pursuing our goals. Our experienced bilingual and bicultural staff is another invaluable asset, allowing us to identify and meet the needs of the Slavic-speaking population. Strong working relationships with the Slavic-speaking community that we have been forging since 1994 enable us to build high levels of mutuality, respect and trust, and provide culturally-appropriate and language-specific services that have a meaningful impact.

All our services are free and confidential.

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Slavic Oregon Social Services operates its program, services and activities in compliance with federal nondiscrimination laws. No person shall, on the basis of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), disability, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any of our programs.

МИ ПІДТРИМУЄМО УКРАЇНУ: Напишіть нам, якщо ви або ваші знайомі постраждали від домашнього/сексуального насильства або ви хотіли б отримати інформацію про соціальні програми в Орегоні російською або українською мовами.

Supporting the Slavic-speaking population

Slavic Oregon Social Services (formerly ROSS) was established by Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) in 1994 to serve the needs of Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants. More than 100,000 Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants from the former Soviet Union currently reside in the Portland metro area, and the numbers are expected to increase. Census figures show that no other place in the nation has had more of an influx from the former Soviet Union than the Pacific Northwest. Oregon is number two in the nation for Slavic-speaking newcomers.

Our Services

> Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services:
Our services include crisis intervention, long-term case management, individualized resource planning/referrals, advocacy, assistance obtaining protective orders and communication with law enforcement, emotional support, mental health counseling, safety planning, assistance accessing low-cost / free legal services, assistance with temporary / transitional housing, short-term financial assistance and support groups.

Other programs may become available in the future; call us or check our website for updates.

Our mission is to successfully integrate Slavic-speaking immigrants and refugees into Oregon and southwest Washington communities by providing services that increase independence, enable economic self-sufficiency, and improve mental and physical well-being. We are currently the only agency that works exclusively with the Slavic-speaking population in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Marion Counties in Oregon, and Clark County in southwest Washington.

Slavic Oregon Social Services has been fulfilling its mission in many different areas. Strong partnerships with local social services agencies, victim service and healthcare providers, and government agencies have been a great asset in pursuing our goals. Our experienced bilingual and bicultural staff is another invaluable asset, allowing us to identify and meet the needs of the Slavic-speaking population. Strong working relationships with the Slavic-speaking community that we have been forging since 1994 enable us to build high levels of mutuality, respect and trust, and provide culturally-appropriate and language-specific services that have a meaningful impact.

All our services are free and confidential.

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Slavic Oregon Social Services operates its program, services and activities in compliance with federal nondiscrimination laws. No person shall, on the basis of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), disability, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any of our programs.

Military Child Education Coalition Resources to Support Ukrainian Military Children & Their Families

As the situation on the ground in Ukraine continues to evolve, and military families deal with potential deployments, we are reminded of the many uncertainties military-connected children experience as a part of the military lifestyle. We are also reminded of the stress and insecurity that can accompany such unpredictable circumstances.

For 24 years, MCEC® has worked to establish programs and resources for parents, educators, and students to help them navigate unique challenges associated with the military lifestyle. Programs like our Student 2 Student® peer-to-peer support system, parent workshops, and professional development for educators all work together to more effectively respond to the unique emotional needs of military children.

MCEC® is also answering the call from our allies. Upon a request from the National Association of Ukrainian Psychologists, seeking resources for serving military families, the American Psychological Association and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences reached out to MCEC®.

We responded with the tools listed below, which, we believe, can be immediately helpful to families during these extremely trying times.

Supporting the Slavic-speaking population

Slavic Oregon Social Services (formerly ROSS) was established by Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) in 1994 to serve the needs of Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants. More than 100,000 Slavic-speaking refugees and immigrants from the former Soviet Union currently reside in the Portland metro area, and the numbers are expected to increase. Census figures show that no other place in the nation has had more of an influx from the former Soviet Union than the Pacific Northwest. Oregon is number two in the nation for Slavic-speaking newcomers.

Our Services

> Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services:
Our services include crisis intervention, long-term case management, individualized resource planning/referrals, advocacy, assistance obtaining protective orders and communication with law enforcement, emotional support, mental health counseling, safety planning, assistance accessing low-cost / free legal services, assistance with temporary / transitional housing, short-term financial assistance and support groups.

Other programs may become available in the future; call us or check our website for updates.

Our mission is to successfully integrate Slavic-speaking immigrants and refugees into Oregon and southwest Washington communities by providing services that increase independence, enable economic self-sufficiency, and improve mental and physical well-being. We are currently the only agency that works exclusively with the Slavic-speaking population in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Marion Counties in Oregon, and Clark County in southwest Washington.

Slavic Oregon Social Services has been fulfilling its mission in many different areas. Strong partnerships with local social services agencies, victim service and healthcare providers, and government agencies have been a great asset in pursuing our goals. Our experienced bilingual and bicultural staff is another invaluable asset, allowing us to identify and meet the needs of the Slavic-speaking population. Strong working relationships with the Slavic-speaking community that we have been forging since 1994 enable us to build high levels of mutuality, respect and trust, and provide culturally-appropriate and language-specific services that have a meaningful impact.

All our services are free and confidential.

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Slavic Oregon Social Services operates its program, services and activities in compliance with federal nondiscrimination laws. No person shall, on the basis of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), disability, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any of our programs.

Military Child Education Coalition Resources to Support Ukrainian Military Children & Their Families

As the situation on the ground in Ukraine continues to evolve, and military families deal with potential deployments, we are reminded of the many uncertainties military-connected children experience as a part of the military lifestyle. We are also reminded of the stress and insecurity that can accompany such unpredictable circumstances.

For 24 years, MCEC® has worked to establish programs and resources for parents, educators, and students to help them navigate unique challenges associated with the military lifestyle. Programs like our Student 2 Student® peer-to-peer support system, parent workshops, and professional development for educators all work together to more effectively respond to the unique emotional needs of military children.

MCEC® is also answering the call from our allies. Upon a request from the National Association of Ukrainian Psychologists, seeking resources for serving military families, the American Psychological Association and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences reached out to MCEC®.

We responded with the tools listed below, which, we believe, can be immediately helpful to families during these extremely trying times.
