Helping Flood Victims in San Jose

San Jose Flood Relief

The San Jose Flood Victims Relief Fund will support nonprofit organizations providing immediate and long-term relief and recovery assistance to flood victims in San Jose. Donate online now.

In February 2017, during one of the wettest winters in decades, several San Jose neighborhoods experienced severe flooding that has forced thousands of residents and businesses to evacuate their homes and caused significant damage to public and private property throughout the city. The most severe flooding has taken place in neighborhoods along Coyote Creek, which includes a number of low-income communities and mobile home parks that were submerged when Anderson Reservoir reached its capacity and began spilling into the creek. For the latest information, residents should go the City of San Jose Office of Emergency Services.
