Immigrant Worker COVID-19 Fund
WeCount! was launched in March 2020. It is a COVID-19 rapid response program to address the economic and public health crisis affecting members and other low-wage immigrant and undocumented workers in South Florida. This includes the establishment of the Immigrant Worker COVID-19 Fund, which is the first COVID-19 mutual assistance fund for undocumented families and workers in South Florida. Since April 2020, the fund has distributed food, PPE, and over $300,000 in direct cash assistance to undocumented workers and families. These beneficiaries are those who were excluded from the COVID-19 stimulus payments, state unemployment insurance, and other safety net programs. Worker leaders in communities, who participate in its design, and implementation manages these COVID-19 relief efforts.
