Storm Assistance for Immigrants (SAI)

The Storm Assistance for Immigrants (SAI) program is a one-time state-funded program for storm recovery and disaster aid for immigrants affected by storms in counties that qualify. Catholic Charities is currently the provider agency for Mariposa County.

The objective is to assist people and families affected by the storms in 2022-2023 who can’t obtain government disaster assistance because of their immigration status. The SAI project offers Mariposa County case management and direct help disbursement for storm-related needs. 

For more information, contact us today! Call us at (209) 383-2494 or email ggonzalez@ccdof.org

Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
