The 805 Undocufund was created in the aftermath of the 2017 Thomas Fire, then the largest wildfire in California history, and the Montecito Mudslides in early 2018. The 805 UndocuFund was relaunched after the Woolsey and Hill Fires in 2018 and reopened again for the Easy and Maria Fires in 2019. The 805 Undocufund reopened again in 2020 and widened the scope of our mission to assist families impacted by the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The 805 UndocuFund is a collective effort to ensure that undocumented individuals and families impacted by disasters have the support and resources necessary to recover and rebuild their lives.
