The Help Center for Foreigners in Łomża provides foreigners with the support of cultural mentors who speak Russian, Chechen, and Ukrainian, a legal advisor, a psychologist for adults and children, a career advisor, and a Polish language teacher.

It is essential to employ such specialists to meet the needs of those with refugee experiences, who might require adaptive, legal, and psychological help as well as support with vocational activation and entering the job market. Cultural mentors who are employees that themselves come from refugee communities help with solving everyday problems that clients may face and, if necessary, they can direct them to other relevant specialists.
The Help Center for Foreigners in Łomża operates from Monday to Friday between 8-4pm at 8 Sadowa Street.

The youth center is open between 4-7pm (during winter break and school holidays times may be subject to change).

Youth center for child refugees
Shortly after opening the consultation point, it became clear that children are in need of support too. Having been exposed to traumatic events, educational gaps, and having no knowledge of Polish language, child refugees face a difficult challenge to study in a foreign country and language. In order to make it easier for child and teenage refugees to continue their education in Poland, we opened a youth center next to the Help Center for Foreigners where children are assisted with learning Polish and doing their homework. The center also runs artistic, culinary, sports, and integration activities. During school holidays, kids can participate in excursions, camps and other activities organised by the Foundation.
During summer holidays, the center organises day-camps, integration activities, themed workshops, sports activities, and camping trips, which help children to get to know each other better, develop social skills and integrate interculturally.
