CAMP AND WOOLSEY FIRES
Our love goes out to our neighbors in Northern and Southern California, and everyone who is impacted by the Camp, Woolsey and Hill fires. Thank you to all the courageous firefighters, first responders, and volunteers who are putting their lives on the line.
WAYS TO HELP IN VENTURA COUNTY
While still recovering from the Thomas fire and mudslide, the Ventura County community is once again displaced and uprooted by the devastating Woolsey and Hill fires. To support Latino families and farmworker communities impacted during this critical time, please donate to the 805 UndocuFund.
The 805 UndocuFund supports undocumented families who are not eligible for federal or state aid due to their status. The Fund ensures undocumented and mixed status families are not forgotten in relief and recovery efforts and receive support with wage loss, housing assistance, food needs, medical expenses, and more. Over 360,000 Latinos live in Ventura County.
Following the Thomas fire, LCF also supported three strong and deeply trusted Latino-led nonprofits that collectively established the 805 UndocuFund, and were supported by our partners in Sonoma.
