California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a stay at home order to protect the health and well-being of all Californians in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The unfortunate consequence of this order is that many people are left without work. Our undocumented community cannot qualify for unemployment or most other benefits available to help get through this order.
We have created UndocuFund San Francisco to help those in our undocumented community experiencing hardship. We are working to raise money to help and will do our best to help as many people possible. We depend on the generosity of the community to donate to our fund in order to provide assistance.
You are eligible if you are undocumented and live or work in San Francisco, or lost employment in San Francisco due to the pandemic.
June 22, 2020: We have received over 9200 applications! While we know the need for economic relief is greater than ever, we have had to make the hard decision to permanently pause our application process until further notice. We are working tirelessly to process applications and fundraise money to support our undocumented communities who have applied to UndocuFund SF since April 1, 2020. We hope that we can continue to raise more funds to distribute to the current 9200 applicants, and begin to take new applications in the future. Please check continue to check back for more updates.
In the meantime, here are some resources to help with basic needs such as food and housing.
