We have been overwhelmed with requests for assistance and are doing our best to help as many survivors as we are able. To that end, we are hoping to get some information from you, so that we might better understand how we can make a tangible difference in your unique situation. Please provide answers to the questions below and we will do our best to connect you with resources. Please keep in mind that our organization focuses on making a tangible difference in the lives of the families we help, so our work goes beyond simply handing out gift cards. Let us know how we could make a difference for your particular situation. Unfortunately, we have very limited funds and are unable to assist all who apply. Your information will be stored in our database and we will be in touch if we are able to provide assistance.
In the meantime Butte 211 has information available for survivors if you would like to access more resources: 1-866-916-3566.
Survivors can also call and set up an appointment to meet with a Case Managers at 855-742-5998 or drop by the Chico Community Center at 2445 Carmichael Dr, Chico, CA 95928 and ask to speak with a IDCM Case Manager.
Before the fire
What town did you live in (please provide previous address for confirmation)?
Were you living on a property you owned, a property you rented or another type of place? If another type of place, please describe.
How many children or adults lived with you? How many pets?
How many people in your household worked part time? Full time? Attended school?
Where are you currently residing? (What town/What is your living situation)
Which one of these would most closely reflect your current situation:
What needs to happen/what assistance do you require to get to a point where you are settled into a new home?
What are some of your immediate needs?
We are working in conjunction with many other organizations to streamline the assistance process. Could you please let us know what assistance you've received so far from any other government or private organizations?
Is there anything else you’d like us to know?
Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. We will be back in touch if we are able to provide assistance. Please keep in mind that we are unable to assist all who respond.
