Give to shelter the farmworker families who grow our food
Southern Oregon has been devastated by unprecedented fires. Thousands of homes are now just piles of ash. Our farms and farmworkers have been hit hard--and need your help to recover!
As of November 1, with the outpouring of support of generous donors from around southern Oregon and around the world, we have raised over $150,000.
100% of your donation goes toward immediate and long-term housing for our farmworkers and their families. Your gift will help cover pressing needs unmet by any future government assistance.
With a pre-fire vacancy rate for rental properties at 1% and with colder weather fast approaching, your donation is appreciated and needed more than ever. Help us reach our goal to raise $200,000 to support up to 20 farmworker families.
Fresh, delicious, locally-grown food is the pride of our region. More than ever, people are relying on our own foodshed. Farmworker families have been our heroes. Now it’s our turn to help them!
Thanks to the generosity of our communities, farmworkers are receiving clothing and food. But home is everything. It’s time to invest --not just for the emergency of today, but for the years to come.
Please donate today for sustainable farmworker housing so our beautiful fields and farm communities can thrive again.
If you have an RV or trailer you are not using and you would like to donate (for a tax deductible donation) to use to house agricultural workers, please contact us.
IMPORTANT: Feel free to note if you’d like to support a particular farm with your donation.
For example, four farmworker families at Fry Family Farms and Le Mera Gardens lost their homes, and we are coordinating targeted support for them to rebuild.
A needs assessment of the impact to farms across the region is underway. We will provide updates on specific farms as available, as well as partnership coordination with organizations like Unete and NW Seasonal Workers.
