Undocumented Hoosier Support Fund / Fondo de Apoyo
Thank you for helping us reach our initial goal of $20,000. Since the formation of this fund, we have received hundreds of petitions for support. We will continue our efforts of fund raising until we have addressed as many of our community’s financial need. Would you help us continue to support families? Aside from this need, we continue to connect folks to their local community organizations for food and other forms of aid.
About the Support Fund
In efforts to provide assistance to our Undocumented Hoosier Families, IUYA:Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance, DAU: Dreamer’s Alliance United as One, Cosecha Indiana, and Proyecto Siembra have united to create a support fund to bring financial relief for undocumented families and individuals being directly affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Undocumented individuals are not eligible to access unemployment benefits or federal social services and resources. This is a number of community members that are at risk of losing income wages, housing, medical insurance and other survival needs.
We kindly ask our allies and community members to share a donation and to share this campaign with your network. This collective work to is to assist, protect and most importantly ensure our undocumented families are not left behind.
We are currently supporting single-parent-families with medical expenses, utility bills, and others expenses. If you would like to request support, please email us at [email protected]
*This support fund was created and is managed by undocumented leaders across the state. All of the money we raise will go directly to the Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance and will then be distributed to directly impacted families. This process will continue until further notice.
