Donate to My Valley My Home/Mi Valle Mi Hogar

The mission of Mi Valle Mi Hogar / My Valley My Home is to support up to 500 Latinx families displaced by the Almeda Fire in securing high quality, sustainable homes they own, in locations conducive to their personal and collective well-being.

Our vision for the future involves the families disproportionately impacted by the Almeda Fire remaining and thriving in the Rogue Valley, and invested with real financial equity in the homes in which they live, located on land owned and stewarded within a community-controlled not-for-profit financial structure. Initially supporting the coordination of short-term transitional support, we will help to coordinate and influence the long-term housing efforts for the Latinx families we aim to serve. Our long-term vision is for these families to live in communities that are more resilient, sustainable, and stable than where they lived before, offering a chance for multi-generational security.

By applying an equity lens at all times and centering historically marginalized voices, Mi Valle Mi Hogar / My Valley My Home will ensure impacted families have a say in the strategy and execution of efforts to secure long-term housing that meets their unique needs. Capitalizing on our existing local capacity, skills, relationships, and knowledge, we will further amplify those historically marginalized voices as we seek to coordinate and mobilize the many partners and resources needed to achieve our mission in a collaborative, inclusive, and culturally sensitive manner.

Our hope is to radically change the typical path of post-disaster home rebuilding in the valley by rooting it in equity, sustainability, and healing.

La misión de Mi Valle Mi Hogar/My Valley My Home es apoyar alrededor de 500 familias Latinas que fueron desplazadas por el fuego de Almeda en asegurar casas sostenibles de alta calidad que poseen, en lugares propicios para su bienestar personal y colectivo.

Nuestra visión para el futuro involucra las familias impactadas desproporcionadamente por el fuego de Almeda permanecer y prosperar en el Rogue Valley, e invertir en verdadera equidad financiera en los hogares que viven, ubicado en terrenos de propiedad y administrados dentro de una estructura financiera sin fines de lucro controlada por la comunidad. Apoyando inicialmente la coordinación del apoyo de transición a corto plazo, ayudaremos a coordinar e influir en los esfuerzos de vivienda a largo plazo para las familias Latinas a las que pretendemos servir. Nuestra visión a largo plazo es que estas familias vivan en comunidades que son más fuertes, sostenibles, y estables que donde vivían antes, ofreciendo una oportunidad para la seguridad multigeneracional.

Al aplicar una lente equitativa en todo momento y enfocándonos en las voces que han sido históricamente marginadas, Mi Valle Mi Hogar / My Valley My Home asegurará que las familias impactadas tengan una voz en la estrategia y ejecución de esfuerzos para asegurar viviendas a largo plazo que cumplan sus necesidades.

Nuestra esperanza es cambiar radicalmente el camino típico de la reconstrucción de viviendas después de un desastre en el valle enraizado en la equidad, la sostenibilidad y sanación.
