DHF: Dolores Huerta Foundation
DHF is uniquely positioned to address the needs of the most vulnerable families in this COVID-19 crisis. DHF staff have been working from home to advocate for educational and economic resources such as food security and access to technology for low income students. DHF is advocating with a statewide coalition, End Childhood Poverty CA, for income support for impoverished families, regardless of immigration status, to make sure those most in need are covered by state and federal emergency funds. DHF continues outreach to hard-to-count communities to secure essential funding for public services for the next 10 years by getting everyone counted in the 2020 Census.
An estimated 38,500 undocumented immigrants live in Sonoma County. Unlike other victims, undocumented immigrants do not qualify for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Even when they do qualify for services, many undocumented immigrants are unlikely to pursue those benefits due to fear of immigration enforcement, lack of familiarity with official institutions, and limited English proficiency. At every turn, our undocumented neighbors face barriers and challenges to recovering from disasters…. We cannot wait to take action. Your support for UndocuFund will provide relief and support to undocumented families and individuals.
Latino Community Foundation’s: Love Not Fear Fund

Immigrant Worker Safety Net Fund
We are launching the Immigrant Safety Fund to provide immediate resources and financial support so excluded workers can take care of themselves and their families at home. Without paid sick time leave, remote work capability, health care, access to jobs, and financial security, migrants are uniquely vulnerable, and the support we collectively muster for the Immigrant Safety Fund might be the only lifeline for thousands of people most at risk in our communities.
All resources we collect will be rationed and distributed throughout our network; and your support will directly help thousands of families across the country.
