The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors established the Sonoma County Secure Families Collaborative to meet the needs of our immigrant community’s increased challenges due to the changes in federal immigration policy and the North Bay wildfires.

We came together to create the Sonoma County Secure Families Collaborative to knit our safety net tighter than ever. The Collaborative’s purpose is to increase legal capacity for immigrants in Sonoma County and to keep immigrant families together, safe, and thriving in our community.

The Sonoma County Secure Families Fund is a trustee-advised fund of the Community Foundation of Sonoma County. Core partners provide critical services our immigrant neighbors need to maintain family unity and community togetherness to ensure our community’s sociocultural and economic vitality. The Sonoma County Secure Families Fund has partnered with Catholic Charities, VIDAS, and USF School of Law Immigration and Deportation Defense Clinic to provide critical services our immigrant neighbors need now to protect them and to protect our entire community’s economic and cultural vitality.
