COVID-19 has affected everyone in its own particular way in spite of socioeconomic status, gender or ethnicity. It has pulled humanity together in more ways than one and we have seen how Californians have stepped up. Weeks ago we sent out a list of organizations’ needs and several of you responded with gift cards.
We want to thank you! With your gifts, organizations housing or helping survivors have been able to purchase groceries, diapers, beds, and tablets for their kids to attend online classes. With just an email, you can choose which home to sponsor. Here are some that have sent us their requests divided by region:

If you are an organization that houses survivors and would like to be listed, please email luz@californiaagainstslavery and we will update this page with your information.
For simplicity, they can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (or donate here) and we will distribute them to service providers OR you can send directly to the organizations in your area.
Your kindness also encourages and uplifts our service providers who are working non-stop in these extraordinary times to continue their exemplary level of care and compassion for survivors. Again thank you for all your help during these difficult times!
