In the wake of a disaster, community members are faced with a variety of stressors that can range from being without power for a prolonged period of time to being forced to evacuate not knowing the state of their home. Families who have experienced bodily or property damage from a wildfire can field exorbitant expenses well after the smoke has cleared, with the average recovery time from a natural disaster ranging from 1 to 3 years post event. The Disaster Relief Fund seeks to assist those facing hardship by providing monetary aid to people who have suffered a direct loss in Lake or Mendocino Counties as a result of a disaster.
Help us meet that need by contributing to the Disaster Relief Fund for Lake and Mendocino counties.
(Depending on the disaster and funds received, NCO will collaborate with local partners to fund and address needs as they arise).
