How can a Ukrainian family apply to receive support and what is the selection criteria?
We strive to help newly arriving families from Ukraine by removing the single largest item from the list of things they need to worry about as they arrive – accommodation for the first year. Our primary focus is on helping families in the most difficult circumstances – mothers with small children, seniors, those that lost their relatives or those, that were forced to relocate having to leave their spouses behind due to the war.
To apply, please contact The Alberta Ukraine Chamber of Commerce with a 2-3 paragraphs about your family in English, the circumstances of your departure from the Ukraine, and your current situation. If there are circumstances whereby we are unable to support a family, we will do our best to find alternate resources that best suit their needs.
Can Ukrainian families only be housed in Le Louvre / Century Park?
No. #WelcomingUkraine started at Le Louvre Residence in Century Park as it was a brand-new building and had many empty apartments therefore it was the perfect marriage for us to host a dozen families due to open capacity for 1-year. It is a luxury building, and we realize, that there are many options and other suitable homes/locations, so we are reaching out to the community to assist with providing alternate housing options to help as many Ukrainian families as possible.
What criteria do you use to qualify essential items and suite sponsorships?
Essential items need to be in new or like-new condition to ensure a solid, healthy foundation for the Ukrainian families to start out with.
If the opportunity presents itself whereby a landlord or individual wish to donate an apartment/s or condo, that they feel would meet the needs of the Ukrainians, we’re more than happy to explore the proposed options. Suites will be assessed on a case-by-case basis; however, location, square footage, and nearby amenities must be factored in.
How do I sign up to sponsor a family at my home?
We are not currently coordinating home sponsorships at this time; however, we appreciate your
support and want to connect you with an organization that would be able to assist. Please contact us and we’ll help you the best we can.
Why did you partner with The Alberta Ukraine Chamber of Commerce, Krawford Construction, and Amigo Relief Missions in particular?
These were natural partnerships built upon established connections and aligned goals. Every
organization has their role and bring the level of experience and expertise required to fulfill this
The Alberta Ukraine Chamber of Commerce helps build a bridge for the Ukrainian families in need. By speaking their native language they’re provided a network of resources to help facilitate getting the families to Canada safely and setup for a success.
Krawford Construction has been a partner of ours for several years and is well established in the
construction industry. They are able to contribute financial means and essential items such as beds.
Amigo Relief Missions is a non-profit organization that provides compassionate and effective humanitarian aid to places including Ukraine. Due to their existing connections and their current push to support Ukrainians in need, they were the perfect match to help us coordinate our financial donations.
Is ProCura a Non-Profit Organization or Foundation?
No. ProCura is an award-winning real estate development and management company whose mission is to elevate people’s quality of life. ProCura has always invested in our community as we believe social responsibility is not only the right thing to do, but also aligns with our morals and values.
We have partnered with The Alberta Ukraine Chamber of Commerce (Government Organization) and
Amigo Relief Missions (Non-Profit Organization) to fulfill #WelcomingUkraine.
What other initiatives does ProCura support?
At ProCura, we believe that creating communities goes beyond constructing great buildings and we recognized an opportunity to strengthen communities through high-visibility project sites and created the Signs of Change Initiative.
This powerful corporate social responsibility initiative focuses on prime-visibility signage packages on construction development sites for our partners in support of creating life-changing opportunities for families and young people in need.
ProCura believes in giving back therefore we’ve donated millions in community and charity organizations over the last couple decades.
