Thousands of immigrant Oregonians are facing extreme economic hardship as a result of COVID-19, yet have been intentionally excluded from worker relief programs.
Over 100 Oregon community partners have come together to form the Oregon Worker Relief Fund to help immigrant Oregonians make ends meet during this crisis.
The Oregon Worker Relief Fund provides financial support directly to Oregonians who have lost their jobs yet are ineligible for Unemployment Insurance and federal stimulus relief due to their immigration status, and now face hunger, homelessness, and economic hardship.
Let’s work together to make our community strong, healthy, and whole. Now more than ever, this pandemic shows us our individual health and well-being is intrinsically linked to the health and well-being of others.

“Hunger is a symptom of unequal access to healthy food and barriers to employment, education, housing and health care. What this crisis has taught us is that with adequate public investment we can dramatically reduce hunger in Oregon as long as all families are included. That’s why the Oregon Worker Relief Fund is critical.”
