Northern CA Fire Support Resources

The deadly north bay fires have killed dozens of people and have destroyed almost 6000 homes and businesses.  The impact on our communities has been devastating.  However, there are many grass-roots efforts to organize and mobilize support for those who have been directly impacted by these fires.

Important Fundraising Efforts:

Undocufund:     “An estimated 28,000 undocumented immigrants live and work in Sonoma County. Unlike other victims of the fires that have devastated Sonoma County, undocumented immigrants do not qualify for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Lack of immigration status, limited English proficiency, and fear of immigration enforcement will also impede their access to disaster-relief services, even when they are eligible.

THE UNDOCUFUND WILL ENSURE THAT UNDOCUMENTED FAMILIES DISPLACED BY THE FIRES WILL HAVE THE SUPPORT AND RESOURCES THEY NEED TO RECOVER AND REBUILD.”

Integrative Healers Action Network:  “This group is for individuals who feel called to service at this critical time in our community by providing bodywork, naturopathic doctor, chiropractic, acupuncture, or other healing services in shelters and other sites throughout Sonoma County. ”
