Migrant-Special Needs Family LOST EVERTHING

6 adults ranging from (78 to 20) and a 11 year old with a disability lost everything due to the Almeda wildfire in Southern Oregon.

The day started as usual. The 5 adults went to work at the agriculture Grape Harvest. They have 3 vehicles but since they all work together they carpooled.

The mom  stayed with her 11 year old son who experiences Developmental Delays. Later that morning, she hears a loud knock at her door. It was the police telling her she had to leave NOW. She had no time to grab anything but their shoes, a few legal documents, and her cell phone. She doesn't drive so she started walking and called her husband to pick them up.

Her husband arrived just on time to pick them up but wasn't able to go to the home or take any of the vehicles.

The first night they where able to stay at the Jackson County Expo Center; however, the fire was closing in and everyone had to be moved.

The family felt helpless, they had lost everything, they literally only had the box of documents, a few sleeping bags, and blankets that were donated at the shelter. 

Last minute, they were able to borrow a pop-up camper were they have stayed the last 2 days but there are only 3 beds and 7 people. There is a portable bathroom outside but currently are having to use a water hose to shower and shower the young boy.

They are not able to stay at a shelter because they are HIGH RISK FOR COVID and don't want to expose the family.

They are needing to find a home, bigger camper, or RV.

Any money donated will go towards finding a home. Please donate if you can and share.
