Oregon Worker Relief Introduces Home Fund for Immigrants Facing Eviction

The Home Fund is a new program offered by Oregon Worker Relief to help immigrants who are in danger of being evicted pay their rent for a short period of time. Although Oregon Worker Relief launched the Home Fund today, they have already distributed funds to communities in need.

Applications to the organization’s climate change fund from those who have lost employment owing to high heat were accepted in the past, as were applications to the relief fund from those who have had their wages reduced or been laid off as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic.

The recently created Oregon Worker Relief fund will assist qualifying immigrants by covering up to two months of rent. In addition to housing assistance, the program will link participants to other resources that might help them get on their feet, such as food, employment, and money management.

“Preventing evictions allows our neighbors to stay in their homes, keeps families safe and intact, and maintains healthy communities,” said Martha Sonato, president of the Oregon Worker Relief Board. β€œCreating shared prosperity in our state starts with ensuring every member of our communities has a safe and decent place to call home β€” and can stay there.”

Although Oregon Worker Relief claims a statewide housing problem, immigrant populations are disproportionately affected. According to statistics provided by the group, one in ten Oregon children reportedly lives with an illegal relative.

Despite this, Isa Pena, a member of the executive community in Oregon, claims that immigrants are often excluded from state aid. Program Manager Andrea Gonzalez said, “Migrant Oregonians are essential to Oregon’s economy and we need to work together to make our community strong, healthy, and whole.”
