The Oakland Family Fund is here!  The Gray Area Foundation catch-all fundraiser is great, but we need to support our people now.

We are (currently) focusing on two main areas:

  • Gathering and distributing funds to those directly effected by this disaster as soon as possible.
  • Assisting current warehouse residents and DIY space operators to stay in their homes and spaces by providing resources and funds as needed.

Eviction notices started popping up around the city (and country) on the Monday after this tragedy.  We plan to coordinate temporary or long-term housing arrangements for those who may be evicted in the coming weeks and months.

More details to come . . .

Check back soon for more details.
