SLO County UndocuSupport is a collaboration of local organizations, community leaders, and concerned individuals who came together in April 2020 during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic with a common goal: to provide financial support for local immigrant families, including undocumented and mixed status immigrant families who were left out of federal pandemic relief programs.
Immigrants, many of them undocumented, do essential work that sustains us all. It is estimated that 9,000 undocumented residents live and work in San Luis Obispo County. They are our neighbors, co-workers, friends and fellow students.
In 2020, SLO County UndocuSupport distributed funds to over 600 local families in 17 communities throughout SLO County for rental assistance and utility payments, transportation, groceries and health needs.
We invite you to join us by donating as generously as you can to the SLO County UndocuSupport Fund at The Community Foundation of San Luis Obispo County.
UPDATE MARCH 2021:
SLO County UndocuSupport is currently taking steps to formalize the organization and to expand our purpose to include providing financial support not only during this pandemic, but also in the future during times of any national, state, or local crises that will have a disproportionate impact on the health and well-being of immigrant families.
To this end, we are excited to announce the establishment of the SLO County UndocuSupport Fund at The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County!
The SLO County UndocuSupport Fund is deeply grateful for the overwhelming support from the local community. Since March 2020, donations have been received from hundreds of individuals, as well as community organizations, local agencies and foundations, including:
During the past year, the SLO County UndocuSupport team applied for grants up and down the state, and has received funding from:
In early April 2021, grants from SLO UndocuSupport to local organizations serving immigrant families were announced.
