¿Qué es el 805UndocuFund?

El incendio de Thomas que ocurrió en los condados de Ventura y Santa Bárbara en diciembre de 2017 fue el incendio más grande en la historia de California. El incendio forestal, la calidad del aire peligroso, el cierre de escuelas y los deslizamientos de tierra llevaron impactos económicos como apartamentos y casas destruidas y dañadas, trabajos y salarios perdidos, mayores gastos de cuidado de niños y otros costos para muchas personas en la región. Muchas personas perdieron el trabajo necesario, especialmente en la agricultura, la limpieza de casas, los cuidadores, los jardineros y otros trabajos donde los inmigrantes constituyen la mayoría de la fuerza de trabajo. Pero los inmigrantes indocumentados están excluidos de muchos programas federales de ayuda por desastre, y también cuando las familias califican para recibir fondos, tienen miedo de aplicar o no saben a dónde ir. El 805UndocuFund es una colaboración colectiva liderada por organizaciones locales de derechos de los inmigrantes para recaudar dinero y dar asistencia por desastre a familias inmigrantes en nuestras comunidades.

¿Cómo ayudará el Fondo a los inmigrantes indocumentados?

 

El Fondo ayudará a personas y familias que hayan perdido sus hogares, salarios y/o empleo debido a desastres naturales con gastos que incluyen pero no están limitados a vivienda temporal, reparaciones del hogar, renta, víveres, gastos de cuidado de niños debido al cierre de escuelas, esencial artículos para el hogar, artículos de limpieza, gastos médicos y dentales, herramientas y equipos necesarios para el trabajo, útiles escolares, reparación de vehículos esenciales, gastos de mudanza y almacenamiento, reemplazo de documentos legales y gastos funerarios. El 805 UndocuFund también ayudará a las familias afectadas a acceder a otros recursos de la comunidad para ayudar con el alivio económico.

From those the 805 Undocufund has helped:

“When the fire came I quickly had a shortness of breath at work so I asked for time off from the supervisor. They gave me permission and when I went to the doctor I was diagnosed with severe asthma that was caused by the smoke. I was prescribed 2 inhalers- one at $300 that I need every 2 weeks and one at $70 for use in emergencies. During this same time we also had to cover the cost of my wife’s eye surgery. I had to cancel my daily inhaler prescription even though I really need it because we couldn’t afford it. I quit and changed jobs from the farm to do something where I don’t have to be breathing in chemicals. That has been inconsistent for me, but I know I need to prioritize my exposure to chemicals if I want to stay healthy. We also had to borrow a lot of money that we are still paying back.” Guillermo, Father, former farmworker in Oxnard, family of 6

“At first when I lost my job, I didn’t want to ask for help from other resources out of fear that I would have to share my immigration status and put myself in danger. But after a few months of no stable income, I became desperate. My friend referred me to 805 UndocuFund and told me how they helped her out with funds to pay rent. I’m so thankful I came and applied, not only did I receive funds for my expenses from evacuating and job loss, I also found other ways to get help in the community.”
–Josefina, Housekeeper in Montectio, Mother of 3, Santa Barbara resident.
