The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County has recently activated its Disaster Support Fund in response to California’s storms, floods, and associated damages. As a result, two local organizations, Los Osos Cares and The Link Family Resource Center, will receive a total of $6,000 to support flood victims in various communities.

Los Osos Cares plays a critical role in the community, offering financial aid to those who urgently need it following a disaster, especially those who don’t meet the government’s assistance criteria. Their efforts have been focused on assisting Spanish-speaking residents, ensuring they can access the financial support they require through FEMA since the recent storms. 

The Link Family Resource Center provides families with access to food, housing, clothing, healthcare, and parent education. They are currently providing emergency financial assistance to families, including farm workers, who are experiencing a loss of wages due to the recent disasters.

“We extend our sincerest appreciation to all those who have contributed to the Disaster Support Fund, including businesses and members of the community,” says Heidi McPherson, CEO of The Community Foundation. “Together, we have raised essential funds to provide vital aid to individuals affected by the recent disasters. Your generous support will continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those impacted by these events.”
