The Minnesota Department of Human Services has posted a job for the position of “Call Center Navigator” for the Uniting for Ukraine program.
Uniting for Ukraine is a federal program that enables Ukrainian citizens and their immediate family to stay temporarily in the U.S. Participating Ukrainians must have a supporter in the U.S. who agrees to provide them with financial support during the two-year period of their parole.
Prospective U.S.-based supporters file an I-134A online request form and are vetted by the U.S. government to ensure they are able to financially support the individual they agree to support.
