October 25, 2019 Kincade Fire Response: where to give
Updated Wednesday, October 31, 2019:
Welcome home Sonoma County. We are incredibly, unspeakably, grateful to the first responders who worked tirelessly to keep the Kincade Fire from spreading further and who are now able to welcome so many of our neighbors home. As many of our neighbors return safely home, we grieve for those families who have lost so much. We are also uncomfortably aware of the trauma that has re-surfaced for many.
Recovery is a years long process and it takes dedicated financial support. Thank you for your support.
If you want to support long-term fire recovery efforts:
Our Sonoma County Resilience Fund stands at the ready to support long-term recovery efforts. First established in 2017 to support recovery efforts from the North Bay Firestorm, our fund continues to be a source of long-term aid for Sonoma County.
To date, we have made grants of over $4.5 million to offer help to individuals who were impacted by the fires, healing the long-term effects of trauma, and fostering housing solutions for our community.
