Serving Undocumented Communities in Disaster and Beyond
Join us on May 18th at 10am for a virtual panel discussion hosted by 805 UndocuFund to discuss lessons we've learned in serving undocumented communities that fellow nonprofits, school/government agencies and philanthropy can apply in working with their undocumented immigrant clients. We’ll also explore how disasters illustrate underlying socio-economic factors and systemic barriers that must be addressed before, during, and after disaster.

ABOUT 805 UNDOCUFUND:
805 UndocuFund is a 501 c(3) and began in 2018 as a massive joint effort among three trusted immigrant-serving Central Coast organizations to respond to the Thomas Fire: Mixteco/Indigena Community Organizing Project (MICOP), Central Coastal Alliance United for A Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) and Future Leaders of America.

Together these organizations, alongside philanthropy partners like the McCune Foundation and the Ventura County Community Foundation, raised, case-managed, and distributed more than 8 million dollars in direct aid to undocumented victims of the Thomas, Hill, and Woolsey wildfires; Montecito mudslides; numerous smaller wildfires that afflict the region each year; and the prolonged impact of COVID-19.

Disaster aid from the state and federal governments continues to be a critical part of the disaster response and recovery process, and yet undocumented residents — who are estimated at 10% of the population in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties — are still ineligible for millions of dollars in support.
